Tasting Notes by WhiskyNotes
Nose: malty start with grapey accents. Some pears. Becomes significantly more flowery and a lot sweeter after breathing. Vanilla. There’s also a vegetal side to it, like raw cabbage. That may seem strange, but it’s quite enjoyable.
Mouth: starts very sweet but grows maltier (and even sweeter). Apples and pears. Nice oak. Hints of pineapple sweets and violets. Lemon squash. Some notes of lavender. Getting slightly spirity and even perfumy in the end, but nothing too bad. More or less the same with water.
Finish: long, grainy and very sugary. Loads of honey with hints of oranges.
Too sweet for me but a decent malt overall. I prefer the other Master of Malt releases.
