    N: Possessing a gamut of rounded all-sorts, this is an accessible, youthful, and pleasing savoury-sweet meaty-ish and salty dram. Lacking peatiness on the nose yet more earthy with slightly charred oakiness, this is sweet, fruity, jammy, and salty with some floral and fauna notes. The bourbon cask action is firm yet not overbearing.

    T: With potential spirity indications on the nose, there’s none of it on the palate – arriving with ease. Much like the nose, this tastes like whiskies I was discovering 15 years ago at the beginning of my journey, and covers a broad spectrum of flavour. Slightly floral and citrusy – “fruit jellies”, a great note from our host Fergus – with a tasty balance between spirit and cask and a nice body to boot. Lovely easy chew also.

    F: Zesty salty/wood spicy > honeyed > malty sugar-water citrus, slightly salty-woody-dry at the end, but that’s not a criticism in this case as it becomes more salivating and even more malty in the final furlong. Ticking all the boxes, this concludes long and clean, chewy fruity-malty-oaky-vanilla-y to the end – rounded. A touch of ash at the death? Yep!

    C: Being such a well rounded whisky, this will please many a whisky enthusiast.
