Member Ratings and Notes
Nose: Faint, solventy and floral with imagination or dog's nose.

Palate: Simple and solvently with a distant caramel, rather like a Glenmorangie 10 or a decent blend in some ways.  There's just no character to it.  It's like talking to a mannequien... not offensive, but, meh.
N: Slightly butyric, buttery, fresh oak.
P: Light and oaky, slightly floral.
F: Smokey, shows it's young age a bit in the finish, a long burn.
Not a bad start, but needs a few more years.
