Colour : Gold.

Nose: Vanilla whipped cream, with banana bits. Quite sharp at first, but after some time in the glass, the nose is more approachable. Some zesty notes as well, and hints of fresh cut herbs.

Palate: Sweet vanilla, with a lot of wood. There is wee alcohol bite, then the second wave of flavours reminds me of sweet bubble-gum.

Finish:Long,fruity,and bitter-sweet wood.Imagine biting on a sugar coated pencil…

Bottom line:

This is a very nice grain whisky. I didnt appreciate the nose at first., but some time in the glass mellowed the alcohol bite, and the nose got quite pleasant with those sweet,sugary and banana notes. The palate is not Over complex, but is nice enough, and it is very drinkable. All in all not a bad dram. I wonder what the price would be. Deducing from the 15 year old, it’s not going to be cheap.
