Tasting Notes by Mountrain
The nose smells of oak and the smell of polished wood. A sweet underbelly of vanilla exists faintly.
I was stuck in a cheap bar for this one, reduced to trying a blend. I thought I would give it a go and not be a malt snob.
The taste was very much of wood vanish with an ever so slight hint of a better sweet malt trying to fight it's way through. I found it depressing compared to those blockbuster Single Scottish Malts I'm used too. Apart from that wood not much else the medium body of the whisky was it's best feature. It doesn't burn either, best had drowned in Ginger Ale me thinks.
I would call this the cheap Mcdonalds cheese burger of scotch whisky Nothing great about it but then again it's not terrible. But why settle for this when there is so much more exciting whiskies to be had. I'd expect something a little bit better from such a large brand.
