    7 years of maturation in a small barrel (1 / 8th in fact) are not everything and do not come booster this fairly simple dram for the rest!
    • Nose
      malt and vanilla, then spices come a little enlarge these fleeting sensations!
    • Taste
      vanilla, vanilla and then some roasted coffee and spices again before a woody return!
    • Finish
      spices, vanilla, malt, wood and velvety sweetness but short to medium finish!

    This is definitely not the worst drink, it tastes good to me - in some properties, it is quite close to the bourbon ... smell> relish> taste.
    • Nose
      Full smell - the blossoming rose, the primal is played with vanilla and light pepper and cinnamon somewhere in the background - vanilla is very predominant, thanks to which it can not be said to be extra complex.
    • Taste
      The taste is a bit bitter and more spicy than the scent promises - in fact, the spice is played by the main prime, and they also feel roasted nuts, coffee and chocolate.
    • Finish
      The mouthpiece is stiffly long with clear elements of woodiness, vanilla, caramel and rising spice.

    From the nose a summer dream, over the rest we lay the mantle of silence. Arranged somewhere at the Stronachie 10 Taste. I would have expected much more from the price.
    • Nose
      Very fruity, ripe pear, apple, dextrose, English lawn in the morning dew, herbs and a little red .... rosehip tea, and again a lot of green cereals, in the back a slight adhesive note and after a few minutes it comes yet, the unripe banana. Very fresh malt with well-integrated aromas, fine nose
    • Taste
      Gentle onset, medium sweetness, some ripe cereals, nuts, but otherwise he does not hold in the mouth what the nose has promised, where is the grass and the fresh fruit notes
    • Finish
      Short and unspectacular
