Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: earthy, grassy, and grainy, with an undercurrent of leather and brine. A drop of water brings out hints of vanilla and honeysuckle.
Body: medium, oily.
Palate: wow. This is interesting. Very spicy. Loads of pepper and a pinch of salt. But sweet too, with notes of coffee, chocolate, almonds, and oatmeal raisin cookies. Way more complex and sweet than the nose suggests.
Finish: pretty short but packs a punch and a mouth full of cocoa, cinnamon, and butterscotch.
This was a great surprise with a lot of bang for your buck. An excellent starter Scotch or just a nice one to have on hand for an afternoon dram or sharing with friends.
