Member Ratings and Notes

Kinda watery and thus super-suck-down-able.  Mostly vanilla and fleeting hints of other candy/toffee stuff.  There's not a lot to say about this, except it could kill you in a long night as a background whisky.  B/B-


RETASTE (Blind): Nose of apricots, honey, with sugary floral scents. Palate is tasty and orangey, honeyed, with plums and traditional scotchy scotch stuff. A solid whisky with great taste and no surprises, this is very very drinkable while still having body to it. Great pick for a party whisky with character.  B 

[No notes] 

Nose:  Very sweet and syrupy with fruit cocktail notes, very nice.

Palate:  Malty wit ha sweet, acidic note late in the palate.

Finish:  Mostly malty


N: vanilla, wood shavings, honey and tangy citrus

P: smooth fruity tang with a citrus finish


After reading my notes (sober) I guess the nose and palate matched up pretty nicely.  B/B-


Blind retaste: B

N: Lemons, custard, licorice.

P: Good texture: not too viscous.  Lemon skins, tangy, green apples

F: Medium finish with dark vegetal notes


n:  Malty and simple


p: Water, oaty, dull. 


n: simple syrup, light honey on oats, pencil shavings, light citrus and dried pineapple.


t: delicate - white sugar frosting on apricots, white chocolate - sweet mostly. Has dried green apples and malt in the middle. Fruit cocktail juice and honey + vanilla finish. Stays sweet throughout, nothing is deep or complex but I can see how it would appeal to those who want to just drink and enjoy.
