Nose
Fruity and sweet. Very “appley”. Appletiser. Baked apples with honey. A bit grainy. Opens on fudge notes.
Palate
Sweet and round. But weak at start. Slightly watery. Drying and getting astringent in time.
Finish
Dry, bitter with a touch of soft spices.
Comment
The nose delivers a fruity bouquet but the palate is a bit dismantled. An old but tired dram. Would have benefitted from a higher strength.

Rob Allanson

72
Nose
Sweet, custard and vanilla pastry, baked apple pie, hints of cinnamon and buttered cornbread. Oak tannins and grainy tablet.
Palate
A honey sweetness at first, but almost seems to be watered down. Gentle to start then the spices begin to build.
Finish
Gentle with those cinnamon and apple notes.
Comment
An easy whisky but seems a little thin, especially on the palate.
