Distribution of ratings for this:
nose: very fruity, notes of prune, apricots, citrus touch, banana, baked apples, american oak, nice malt feeling, there is a very remote and minimal resemblance of peat/smoke. all in all quite strong and interesting aromas for a really affordable blend like this.
taste: some caramel and malty feeling, fresh fruits, banana, but quite one dimensional with a meaty undertone.
finish: very poor finish, disappears very quickly, after some seconds some standard malty/grainy bitterness comes through.
summary: to the nose this blend promises a lot, but after having tried it, it reveals a very poor body and character. gentle and convincing to the nose, taste-wise quite boring and a poor finish. the famous grouse has a more diluted feeling to the nose and isn't such intense and aromatic to the nose like this blend but overall delivers a more balanced performance. surely good for mixing and drinking on the rocks at some easy drinking partiy. bought for 8,99 euros - a very economic blend.
