Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: a bit sweet. Also dank, mossy. Dried orange peel, raisin, damp wood, very slight peat. A decent range of aromas, but ultimately quite thin.
Taste: that hard bite of young grain whisky. A bit more peat smoke than was evident on the nose (though not a peaty whisky per se), a bit less fruity sweetness.
Finish: sweetness goes over to bitterness in a hurry, then a rapid fade.
Balance: for an entry-level blend, it offers some variety but comes across a little dirty-tasting with the young peat and harsh grains not really gelling. A bit more robust than some comparable blends but not overly pleasant.
