This is a typical young and still immature modern malt that should have spent some more years of maturation. It is not flawed and hence drinkable but it is neither enjoyable nor is there anything of interest in it, so why should I invest money and my precious liver cells into such a dram? But it is a good base malt if you want to create your own blend...
The colour is white wine and the nose is that of a typical young whisky - simple, mashy (I call this immature) and completely unimpressive. Why do they bottle such stuff?
The taste is not impressive either - just sugary-sweet with some spices from the woods. The typical taste of an immature (underaged) dram but do not get me wrong: Some casks develop a very fine profile even with less than 10 years but not this one, unfortunately.
The initial mouthfeel is a little of everything - a little warming, a little peppery-hot, a little coating and a little drying-astringent, not really a pleasurably arrival. The finish is short and guess what - unimpressive and immature.
