- Not bad for a cheap NAS, but no treat either. Inoffensive is the word. No odd off-notes, no conflicting flavors, but no personality either.
Apple juice, a wisp of peat, and caramel. An undertone of dirty laundry, and assorted Haribo candy. It's really quite sweet and simple. Is there 1st fill bourbon here? Doughiness.
Initially sweet and big, but completely hollow inside. There is an obvious youth to it, that in fact isn't that far off from the 3yo offerings of various new distilleries, except instead of a bearded hipster with obscure hobbies, this one's as buttoned up as they come. A traditional low middle tier Spey, kissed by the most generic bourbon cask. Sure there could be more to it, but the mix is uninspiring, and the wet dough notes betray its young average age.
Sweet, faintly acetonic. Nothing to speak of.
