Forward and unpretentious. Luscious of chocolate and toasted honey.
Interesting ice cream soda frizziness. Very fragrant, fresh and smells
Palate:- Sprinkles of spices on sweet floral malt. Oaky dry mouthfeel. Balance and round.
Finish:- Smooth as silk. Very charming and a beauty. But just slightly short on the tail.
— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
- He is slightly smoky !!?
Nobody writes about it here.
Am I imagining it, or is it not smelling anybody because it's not on the bottle?
- When I first tasted this I was not very impressed but it did improve as the bottle went down, still nothing special but is fine everyday drinking malt.
- Nose: Oak, oaky Spices, Vanilla. Sweet, some Eucalyptus or Mint. Gets warmer with some malty notes and red Apples.
Taste: Peppery arrival, not overpowering but gentle and easy. Sweet with some nice viscosity but not oily. Some apples again.
Finish: Smooth finish, with some nice peppery oak.
Raisins, cherries, melon, red grapes, after some time pears, apples.
Oak, vanilla, cocoa, dark chocolate, bitter tea.
Pleasant sweet, short
- There was an American release around this time also.
