Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whisky very differently from me.
Sweet, sherry, citrus tang, floral tones.
With Water: Slight smoke and sweetness coming through as honey.
Spice and a dash of subtle smoke, creamy and sweet to start but slightly bitter near the end.
With Water: Caramel sweetness with a hint of vanilla.
Medium to long, hazelnut, spice and again some subtle smoke.
With Water: More spice – peppery oak.
This is one of the Christmas gifts you get bought every year because you like whisky when the person buying it knows nothing about whisky. It’s cheap and cheerful and often overlooked as a result. However it actually has a surprisingly good profile to offer for a cheap blend. If you want to get into whisky but don’t have much money then some of the cheaper blends like this are a good place to start practicing your skills.
