A typical blending malt not intended to be bottled as a single release - so why they bottled it? Because of the huge Allt-A-Bhainne fan base out there? Another dispensable dram, to be honest...
The colour is jonquiripe corn and the texture shows a small sticky ring with a few late tears. The nose offers the typical grassy and autumn floral profile most blenders prefer for their base malts (it provides substance without adding too much flavours so they can deliberately add wanted aromas from other high-profile malts with lower quantities needed). Nevertheless this is subtle and flawless, just very simple.
The taste is sweet on barley sugars and some honeys with light floral and grassy notes.
The initial mouthfeel is a little warming but not really coating. The finish is rather short and shows a bitter-drying end (plastics, cardboards). Water turns the dram flatter but more approachable and it takes away some of the unpleasant bitter finish - I like it best somewhat reduced.
