Tasting Notes by markjedi1
Next to the NAS-version, there is also this 10 Year Old. The Bradan Orach was a serious let-down. Hence the expectations for this one are not very high. On the contrary.
The nose is mildly floral and a bit fruity. I detect vanilla, but also white bread and some citrus fruit. Grain cookies. Fresh as spring, actually. Very accessible. Nothing wrong here.
Unfortunately it again has a very light body, almost watery. Some honey, some caramel and a truckload of vanilla. The fruit is again of the citrus variety. Touch of pepper.
The finish is short, sweet and softly peppered, but dies a bitter death.
This is a typical card player’s whisky. Nothing wrong with it, but surely not a high flyer. Reminds me a bit of vodka. Hence a low flyer. Not even 25 EUR. Rather popular in the States, where it is bottled at 43% ABV.
