    Cameronbridge... takes Sherry well but this is a pretty typical grainy whisky IMO. Let's dig though and see what we've got.

    Grain whisky isn't everyone's thing. That's fine, but it's well worth a try. This is a great example of a backbone malt in a modern blend, nothing too heavy... not too much vanilla or wood... but just the right balance to build a vatted malt from.

      You know how they say glue with grain... that's here. Pencil shavings and varnish, but also something like pine needle tea with a splash of vanilla ice cream. It's pretty potent and rather one dimensional but not all bad. There's an almost Irish vinyl eraser/oily fruit note in the bottom that catches my attention.

      Pine sawdust and leaded pencil shavings and white glue. Vanilla honeycomb and walnut skins with a twist of wood spiced caramel sweets. Nothing super revolutionary here... but it's good honest whisky. Make me want to drink more.

      The oak doesn't seem to hang out long as it turns slightly bitter and drying, more spicy and boiled sweets here, some white tea notes and maybe some hay and a bit of animal pens.
