- Tasted on 09-14-2020 at Corachie Farm.
- Very nice dram, does all the basic stuff really well. No bells and whistles, but it really delivers.
Lemon, vanilla, dried fruits, toffee, honey, dried herbs, light acetone, cream, overall nice "cake" nose.
Easy on the palate, good dose of cane sugar, simple sweetness, light oak, good amount of barley, toffee, dried fruits, dates, a bit of mint. Second chew gets a bit more spicy, peppery, and also brings vanilla cream as well as lemon oil. Really quite good. On the third chew it gets drier, with slight leather notes, light tobacco leaves, a bit of fresh grass, dried herbs, some liquorice, vague hint of smoke. Really well made as easy drinkers go.
Light, some spices, drier, but still some sweetness and toffee. Grassy notes, tobacco leaves, dried herbs, and cream.

"It is a very civil, accessible, perfect example of a modern, contemporary scotch single malt whisky which is getting it right."
Smell: delicate Rich fresh apples on the nose, light waxy feel of lemon grass candles, if go deep still hints of plums, little hinds of grass.
First feel the trace of honey then Spicy woody tannin feel on tongue then plum sour, the whole process is covered with strong spices, hot and crazy
Finish is rich spices, with coca longer than songleton12
- Acquired for 26 euros. 46% not colored, ncf. There is not much you can do wrong. Still not expecting much.
Subtle sherry notes, the typical citrus-like Arranch character as well as typical vanilla and caramel notes from Bourbon barrels.
Smooth, sweet, very pleasant.
Spicy, woody, medium length.
