Review and Tasting

Sampled on 20/04/2016

Appearance

Clear, pale golden.

Aroma

Light honey, freshly milled buttery wheat with faint charcoal and white pepper.

Taste

Light-bodied, buttery vanilla, faint chocolate and black pepper spice.

Aftertaste

Lingering buttery popcorn and mild peppery spice.

Overall

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.
