  3. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Light, clean speyside malt with those familiar sweet/savoury lemon barley notes coupled with faint touches of mushroom, scorched earth, charred corn-on-the-cob and Roman spa mineral water [from Bath]. Although light in colour this appears to have some age to it - maybe up to 15 years? Its a soft nose but rather affable.
    T: Its fairly prickly without water. With plenty added it reveals itself as a very simple, medium-light malt whisky with a comforting blanket mouthfeel and a truly consistent delivery - I kept it in the mouth for around a minute and it didn’t budge an inch.
    F: Some milk chocolate notes accompany the sweet/savoury barley.
    C: Extremely simple yet agreeable.
