Member Ratings and Notes
I get strong barley soup in the nose.  Also some rye.  Interesting.  But the palate... it's so plain and watery.  There's a slightly fruity/winey character, and slight spice and hay/grass hints.  More spice creeps into the slight but long finish.  Though I've had some tasty treats from Auchentoshan (Lowlands tend to get some bashing), this is whisky with little to say. 
N: Spicy vegetable, like celery dipped in a Bloody Mary, pepper, and coconut.
P: Oily, spicy, cinnamon, and pepper.
F: More of the same.
Interesting and complex, but frankly not that enjoyable. 
Dark in color makes you think it will be rich and flavorfullllllll........but not so much.  Pretty weak and I see why they did the 'triple wood' thing to 'fix' what was broken....too bad the fix was just a bandaid that didn't actually cover the wound. 

n:  Very little


p:  Blendy and simple.  Bit too much of an alcoholly taste.

n: brown sugar, dried strawberry and golden raisin. Bubblegum and taffy. 
t: thin/watery; mostly alcohol flavor and cinnamon gum. Sherry is new style and flat. Not much to describe here. C/C-
