Review and Tasting
Sampled on 20/04/2016
Clear, pale golden.
Light honey, freshly milled buttery wheat with faint charcoal and white pepper.
Light-bodied, buttery vanilla, faint chocolate and black pepper spice.
Lingering buttery popcorn and mild peppery spice.
Light in colour, body and some would argue flavour, this grain whisky has subtle notes of light honey, buttery wheat, chocolate and popcorn. The over £30 price point seems a tad punchy for this liquid and packaging.
