    Tasted a 2021 bottling of this NAS scotch blend from Ian MacLeod Distillers.
    • Nose
      Malty, decently aged, not aggressive. Smells like a classic Speyside blend. Fruity, caramel, vanilla, toffee, with a hint of nutmeg and spice, plus quality ex-bourbon oak.
    • Taste
      Smooth. Tastes at least 5 years old, with 50/50 grain and malt. Very lightly fruity, leaning more on caramel, vanilla and toffee, with evident spicy and oak notes at the back. Good cask management and blending here.
    • Finish
      Medium. Warming. Malty and spicy, followed by dry oak. It's the best kind of finish for a young blend.

      Final thoughts: better than expected, very good value, I would recommend this as a simple blend for sipping. This whisky also benefits quite a lot from time on the shelf after being opened. A couple weeks of airtime made it significantly smoother and tastier.
