    Column still malt whisky, would be considered "grain" in Scotland since barley malt whisky is to be distilled in pot stills only. There is however a "Coffey" malt whisky from Loch Lomond out there under the grain moniker. Ok, back to this one, surprisingly pleasant whisky in comparison to all those young NAS grain-heavy Japanese blends flodding the market lately. Price is fair for what it its. Worth a try in my book. Recommended.

    creamy and oily, it's like a rum. Coffey and dark chocolate

    A decent everyday dram for those that like them sweet and easy.

      Varnish all over, very dominating. Then vanilla shows up, followed by freshly polished wood, sawdust, mint, and a bit of honeysuckle.

      Good mouthfeel, very mild of the palate, good texture. Very sweet, cane sugar, syrupy, very little oak. Lots of barley, then cardboard notes join in with a little bit of menthol. Second chew is even spearmint, then vanilla. Really sweet, sugar and candy, no fruits. Light peppery notes. Third chew brings notes of cooked ham and a bit of dried herbs. Still too sweet for me.

      Oaky spices, very dominating pure white sugar, a bit of mint and cardboard linger. Medium long, fairly decent.
