The label says this malt has been matured in American and European oak casks, no other information is forth coming. As an offering from such a fine distillery the age, price and ABV seem appealing and it’s not a bad colour in the glass, quite a rich amber but that’s probably its best feature if I’m being brutally honest.

Rather dry on the nose with not much in the way of obvious aromas, a faint whiff of some toasted almonds perhaps. The high alcohol content is felt on the palate with quite a bit of alcohol burn, but not enough to require dilution. The flavours are muted without much complexity, I’ve identified with difficult some malty hints and some oak but this is pretty bland whisky. The finish is quite tame too which is not great from a high strength bottling.

Overall this is not bad whisky, certainly no off notes, it’s just dull. Most common-a-garden blended scotches are more interesting than this these days.

I'm curious, did you taste it with water or straight up?
