Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: Champagne, apple cider, demerara sugar, mild smell of earthy smoke and sooty brickstone, butterscotch and sweet lemon rounds it off.. Pleasant nose
Palate: Smoky and and some pointy slightly vinegary fruit notes is the main theme, altogether though its abit watery and medium to weak output of flavours.. Reminds me of a watered down glenlivet nadurra with more smoke..
Finish: Mild smoky finish with hint of anise, tiny citrus hints and faint butterscotch.. Medium length
Gentle and balanced, its just not exiting enough for me, I need more liveliness and/or unique complexity. Decent, but there are other cheap 40%
ers id rather drink as a “daily dram”
For example Laphroaig 10, Famous Grouse 12yo Gold Reserve, Tullamore Dew 12yo Special Reserve, they are not similar in style though, too anCnoc 12 or each other ;).. Also become fond of cheap grappas lately, they pack good amount of flavors and complexity, espresso and grappa is a recommended combo for big flavour guys!!.. :)
