Member Ratings and Notes
The nose is sweet and malty with some nice fruit and white grape juice. The palate is very straightforward and malty without much else going on. It reminds me a lot of Glenmorangie 10, malty and sweet and not bad at all if a bit boring. 

N: A little doughy upfront, slightly thin and sweet. A bti of nail polish remover, a hint of acetone. Lightly malty. 


P: Watery but sweet, with gently insistent malt and a slight pleasing tingle of spiciness on the tip of the tongue. Slight wood touch. 
F: Malty to finish with a bit of cookie dough and brown sugar. Some apple skin and a faint touch of earthiness; some pear. 
Given a 10y single malt for $20, it's not bad. In absolute terms though it doesn't do much for me.  

n:  Unsweetened coffee


p:  Weak.  Caramel.  Simple and blendy.
