    N: With developing candy, boing goes the sulphur. Very Pot Still-esque [notes to follow later in the year]. It settles as a sweaty spirit with hazelnuts, mineral hues and blatant feints. I’m certain the Speyside Distillery take a wide cut, shipping the majority of their produce to Asia for various branded budget blends.

    T: Waxy fruity candy [seemingly from the cask over the spirit], but given the cut that’s just fine.

    F: Light on icing sugar and a clean minerality. Spam rightly pointed out the absence of a tannic finish despite the sherry cask dominance. 

    C: Appreciation for whisky isn’t only down to smell & taste, and for a distillery that produces a wide number of different spirits of meagre quality, the result here isn’t terrible. [Further reading: Blog]. This one proved highly unpopular on the night with not even a half vote from one [student], who managed to consume three measures. I awarded it an enthusiastic 80 but absolutely no more.
