N: A balanced all-rounder. Note-wise, vanilla wafer initially opening with a malty, husky & leathery pong.
T: Malty/husky-light, yet overall austere. With water it’s more consolidated and malty. Needs time for a mild bone-dry mouthfeel to develop.
F: A little savoury-sweet, raisin-y/metal-y and with aniseed=liquorice.
C: Simple and gluggable dram that reveals more of its age with time.
Scores a C+
