...that fully confirms my old rating. This is a flawless underaged dram with a sugary spike that owns nothing else of interest (to me). Why should I spend my precious liver cells on such alcohol?
The colour is pale straw and the nose offers a simple profile of vanilla and barley sugars with no other significant aromas (if I sniff long enough I will detect some more, maybe - but why should I?). This is the typical nose of an young "underaged" whisky, and it is just boring to me...
The taste is very simple too - tons of barley sugars in a spicy (mainly vanilla) wooden setting. There is no flaw but nothing of interest either. It is easy drinkable but again, why should I drink it?
The dram arrives waming and coating on the palate with a minor peppery touch. The finish is of medium length and adds even more sugars (which were too bold on the palate already). There are no distracting moments but no attracting moments either. Water is not needed.
