    The palette is the best part... burnt caramel & cappuccino!  Finish was a bit short, but overall the whole was impressive for a grain whisky.  I think the small sherry cask used for finishing this worked some real  magic on the distillate.

    Surprisingly good on the nose like a cup of tea, good on the palate, a bit unfortunate finish - probably it's just the single grain that is not my preference
    • Nose
      Herbal spices, rosemary, thyme, camomile, hints of honey, oak wood, toffee, butter scotch, whiffs of vanilla too - not bad
    • Taste
      Oily, creamy, herbal, camomile again, milk chocolate, subtle sweetness
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, a tad bitter, unfortunately hints of leather boots, cold cigars

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of MaltNose: Aromas of rancio, oily walnuts and rosemary honey seep through dusty oak and wood polish. There’s a suggestion of toast dripping with butter.Palate: Plenty of rich and nutty oloroso goodness, dried apricots, meaty dates and a little blackcurrant. The fruity opening is complemented by the gentle sweetness of spicy muscovado sugar and thick, black treacle. Cashew nuts keep oaky tannins company in the backdrop.Finish: The dusty oak persists with help from tobacco leaves and juicy prunes.Overall: Devilishly dark and brooding, somehow both understated and a powerhouse. Wow.
