    First of all I just want to say I am English and this is the first English whisky I’ve had so I really wanted to like this.  With no fake colouring added and a slightly higher than minimum bottling strength things look promising before you open the bottle. The nose is perfectly pleasant, nothing to get too excited about but decent. Young, perhaps a bit spirity, light peat, slightly grassy, almonds, stewed fruits and very light toffee. On the palette though there is a quite an unpleasant element which I don’t pick up on the nose or even on the arrival, from mid palette to the finish though there is a note of something like a mix of unripe bananas and hairspray, it really makes this a bit of a chore to drink. Whether it's just some new make roughness which needs ironing out with more time in the cask or its some dodgy casks in the vatting, I don’t know, I need to try some of the early chapter releases to really speculate. So while I wouldn’t buy this particular version again it has if anything made me even more interested in trying other expressions but unfortunately not for the right reason. Would be very interested to hear what others think of it.
