This along with Famous Grouse Black was included in the tour.
A shame to serve this as the standard dram to represent them.
Let's hope I find something more pleasing in the extended tasting samples.
Sherry notes are more clean and fruitier than on batch #2
Not as raw, but for those sensitive to sulphor I think there is quite a bit of struck match here. Maybe not as much of the match itself, but rather the striking plate, as there is a dry cardboard note here as well.
A little wood, a slice of red apple.
Nothing to write home about, but an OK nose.
Thin and weak from arrival. And it never really picks up to much more.
Not much to notice of neither sherry nor fruit.
It's caramel juice with a hint of bitter wood.
Slightly dry, a little bitter.
And there's a strange note of cooked vegetables that I don't fancy too much, but it doesn't last long.
Not one to sit an savour.
