T: It’s 60.3% strength shows now but its certainly sippable neat. This arrives a little like a single malt, somewhat sharp but although the grain and oak are in cahoots, with a firm and purposeful travel but with an edginess en-route - sweet-to-savoury-to-sour with a little chocolate, raisins for sure and vanilla cream, the simple grain enjoying an easy ride. Lovely mouthfeel despite its abv. More bitter-sour with water added.
F: Evens out flat. Neat: very short and a little dry, but add water for an elongated, salivating waxy=buttery] chocolate mouth coating with a hint of menthol.
C: Equitable grain bottled at a fair age. Works best with only a few drops go water. Good deceiver for a blind single malt tasting.
