The reviewed sample was provided by a friend. The reviewed bottle had been open for 7 months and was 1/3 full at the time of the dispensing of the sample

Nose: light wine flavours, together with light cereal-like malt flavours. Good intensity for 43% ABV whisky. This is pleasant in a mild-mannered sort of way. Score: 21/25

Taste: the wine element takes charge in the mouth. Strong and good wine flavours, with the cereal-like malt taking the second role. Wood? There is a hint. This is a classic Speyside style malt. Score: 21.5/25

Finish: slow fade out, with some sourness becoming more prominent. Score: 21/25

Balance: good balance, in this completely inoffensive mild-mannered Speyside whisky. Score: 21/25

With water: Nice with water! The nose is vibrant with water, which brings out both flavour and sweetness. This is also very rich in the mouth with water added. This is one I prefer with water added, which is seldom the case with me. This is worth a point or two more to me with water added

Total Sequential Score: 84.5 points

Strength: good strength of flavours throughout the tasting steps. Score: 21.5/25

Quality; good wine flavours with adequate barley grain flavours. Score; 21/25

Variety: a little narrow variety in this simple whisky. Score: 20/25

Harmony: good to very good harmony throughout. Score: 21.5/25

Total Non-Sequential Score: 84 points

Comment: not much to say here. This is prototypical low ABV Speyside sherried malt
