    Review and Tasting

    Sampled on 23/09/2012

    Appearance

    Clear, pale straw yellow.

    Aroma

    New make spirit and freshly baked doughy wholemeal bread with faint vanilla and cinnamon spice.

    Taste

    Linseed oil, new make, creamy barley, nubuck leather and light cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper spice.

    Aftertaste

    Medium length with creamy barley, dough bread and light nutmeg. Perhaps more reminiscent of a new American rather than Scottish whisky. Light, new leather and morish.
