Taste: sweet-spicy, milk caramel, cinnamon, coriander, light black pepper, smoked meats, ash, wood tannins.
Finish: fading sweetness, spices, again a lot of wood, creamy caramel, slightly salty-mineral, rather oily, of medium length.
Bottom line: whisky is simple as a penny - sweet-spicy, slightly smoked, with an abundance of wood at all stages. But somehow, there is nothing to scold him for, 46% give a dense harmonious taste and a good finish. Sherry alcohols here are probably added minimally, but the influence of Quater Cask can be heard at all stages. Any basic whisky from Ayla would probably be more interesting, but if we take into account that this is us from DF, with a fairly modest price tag, then it has the right to life. Purely for acquaintance with the fumigated Highland.
