Nose
Fresh leather. Oil.
Palate
Fruity. Honeydew melon. Honey.
Finish
Grainy. Sunflower seeds.
Comment
A pleasant whiskey for everyday drinking.

Jim Murray

Nose
Lots of caramel and soft grains. Flat, one dimensional and uninspiring.
Palate
Caramel-sweet and very soft at first; then hard, bitter grains and vanilla.
Finish
Dry with an almost apologetic spiciness.
Comment
Not to be confused with great malt by the same name. Pretty poor stuff.
