An unchilfiltered blended whisky that’s e150 free (from the looks of it) and quite easy on the wallet.
Nose: Sweet ripe spice, with very faint fruit and bitter chocolate. Light toffee and butterscotch with occasional whiffs of green apple. Make that lots of green apples now. Gotta let this open up. Soft character but lots hiding within. Some soft peat lurking in the shadows here. But I must stress, its hard to find.
Palate: Creamy/smooth, pepper sweet dryness with a hint of salt and honey peat.
Finish: Spicy, warm, and very creamy. Finish wise not too much going on, but enjoyable in its own special way. No grain detectable even though its in here somewhere. This is a well balanced blend that delivers a thicker, more rounded and heavy mouth feel then expected. In terms of comparisons, I’d pick this over Grants, which was good, but quite one dimensional. This is good stuff!
