Nose
Plenty of saline fresh grain with some sweet, dried fruit underpinning. A touch of estery apricot and banana along with sweet vanilla, toffee and herbal rye-like notes.
Palate
Opens with the lightly oiled but spicy grain with the malt coming through on the middle. Subtly oaked with hints of barley, but the grain is the dominating factor.
Finish
Long and grainy with a touch of coffee and sweet grain notes.
Comment
A grain heavy blend which has a lovely vibrancy and just enough malt character to add depth.

Nose
Nothing too spectacular on the nose, there is a creamy note which mixes with oak spice and some dried fruits.
Palate
The palate is led by sweet vanilla notes from grain whisky, with malt elements to the side of the palate. Like a Mr Whippy.
Finish
The sweetness of the palate turns slightly bitter for a dusty finish.
Comment
A very creamy and vanilla fronted product.
