It is far from being a top quality whisky, but it is not bad, not just "not that bad". The combination of a NAS badge and multiple-cask-type-finishing seems often does more bad than good to a whisky and can easily provoke prejudice. Quit often this stereotype is correct and is a good indicator. But this one actually deserves a fair score.
The nose is full of dried plum and Coca Cola. To some this feels cheap and lab-made. Yet actually it is quite intriguing. It also has wafer biscuits, and soaked raisins. Underneath all these there is lime juice, and a little wood scent appeared over time. So, yes, nose-wise it is not complex (it is a NAS whisky after all), but it is also quite pleasant.
The mouthfeel is light, and it tastes quite like a piece of dense brown-sugar, rum-soaked raisins cake. Actually this is the dominant flavour. Gave it a few more chews there appeared a little blackcurrant juice, which added to the freshness.
The finish is dry and woody. Sadly the dried, dark fruit flavours did not linger. And, some bitterness appeared at the back of the throat.
