Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: Needs to open. Something like tequila, and fermenting(rotting) strawberries. Later, something like refried beans; and if I had to pick the closest herb, it would be oregano.
Palate: Smooth entry, and then grassy, with notes of hay and bitter peels. The nose's tequila and strawberry return, along with some steamed broccoli juice.
Finish: Like straw-- vaguely sweet but flat.
This blended malt was rumoured as decent for the price. This might be true for those shopping in the price range, but for me it just passes the mark as drinkable: it is smooth, but it is flat.
The nose is strange and reminds me a of... Isle of Jura 10! So I was not too surprised to read that Jura was among the 16 Scotches used to concoct this. My recommendation is to get the Jura 10 instead, which seems to be less expensive anyway. In lieu of "character", it is a little sweeter (e.g. apricot, caramel, tobacco) and overall more pleasant.
