    [June, 2017]  Another dram from the DFDS Exclusive Collection selected by the folks of danish Braunstein distillery.

    The colour is old gold and the texture shows slow early legs and late little tears.  The nose is sugary sweet with some cooked fruits and summer floral notes, I would not call this complex.  The initial mouthfeel is hot, peppery and not coating.  The taste is two-dimensional again (like many of today's designed whiskies) on this sugary barley sweetness and vanilla-driven wooden notes.  The finish is rather long and sweet, just a little drying out at the very end (tannins).  Water turns the nose into a rather one-dimensional sweetness and flattens the taste - I like it better when neat.

    This is a typical "designed" whisky lacking depth and balance.  Not recognisable as a Macallan, could be any modern Speyside malt...
