...and it is what it is: A young whisky from a third-tier distillery that is both flawless and unimpressive. Nothing you would ask for (if you were asked before) and most probably nothing you will buy (after you are asked for that). By the way, this whisky matured in a bourbon hogshead before it was re-casked into a sherry hogshead in August 2017.
The colour is old gold and the nose offers a flawless fruity (apples) bourbon profile with some minor sherry aromas. It is pretty fresh (young) and without any further complexity but still nice to sniff...
The taste is fruity (apples, pears) and sugary sweet with minor wooden notes. Actually, there is not much more - a very simple and straight-forward dram without flaws but without highlights too. Water turns the taste even sweeter and reduces the slight drying-astringent feeling in both mouthfeel and finish. I like it best when reduced to about 40% abv.
The initial moouthfeel is warming but not really coating and shows a minor drying-astringent feeling (plastics). The finish is rather short and adds no new impressions beside a minor plastic astringent feeling again.
