    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose: Floral honey, home-made vanilla ice cream, toffee pennies and dried sultanas. Old oak sits at the centre.Palate: Up front we're treated to fried bananas drizzled with honey, juicy peaches and oodles of vanilla. Rich nutty notes follow on, as does spiced oak and Victoria Sponge Cake.Finish: Long and full of all the great stuff that came before, the vanilla and oak standing out amongst it all.Overall: Staggeringly good grain whisky from Girvan.My comments: tasted at the Whisky Live Paris 2014 event (+ 1 sample). Nice but the nose and the finish are under the very good creamy taste for this too high price.

  3. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Made from Maize and matured in first fill casks apparently although the colour would indicate otherwise
    N: Some glue and varnish but mainly peppery, woody spirit
    T: Creamy vanilla, tangerine and cocoa
    F: Not really
    C: Nice but still young and for £375 [Oct ’14], within that context it can’t be recommended.
