Member Ratings and Notes
Nose is rather indistinct, vaporous/alcoholy, honey, with Pinot Grigio.  Palate has some fruity spice, but again, it's just kind of indistinct.  Finish is moderate, consisting of a peppery-spicyness that's more a feeling more than a flavor.  Water seems to wipe out everything except that same peppery finish in a milder form.  Given the ABV, I think this otherwise milder malt will have trouble finding a true friend.  Poor guy.

Nose is distantly floral.  This is a scotch you can take into public to mingle with fine society.  If a thick sherry monster is a whore, then this is the pretty, friendly girl from grandma's church.  Happily delicate in that special Rosebank way, I'm reminded of clover that's been sitting in sugar syrup, not that the palate is thick.

Ladies, a dram?

Nutty sweetness with minerals and some plastic on the nose. Gets a bit more sour on the palate with a medium spicy finish.
