Nose
Peaty,earthy. An animal note,like the straw from the cowshed. A slight custardy aroma brings in a sweet touch.
Palate
Smooth at start,then alcohol tickles the tongue but remains quite tame. A fresh aniseed flavour. Sweet grassiness.
Finish
Dry, fresh, with a slight astringency.
Comment
A solid dram. Rough and ready. The malty sweetness helps balancing the high strength. Invigorating.

Nose
Ice cream and caramel but with water, dirty murky note.
Palate
Scrungey, flat and immature.
Finish
Not nice.
Comment
A rough and ready youngster that shouldn't have been let out on its own.
