  3. lincolnimp scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This has a nice fruity, grassy % peaty combo at first nosing followed by a little varnish.

    The palate at 50% is a little harsh with the fruit coming through and the grassy side remaining but not much fruit on show here
    The finish is long but not particularly memorable.
    In truth this is like many Coleburn offerings , it is decent but hardly exciting.
