Nose
A little subdued to begin with but with time and aeration some pleasant barley and white fruit and herbs appear. Lightly citric with an almost ozone fresh grain note and late Bourbon oak.
Palate
Quite oaky and toasty with toffee and a touch of barley. Fairly straightforward but pleasantly deep with the grain powering through.
Finish
Good length with the herbal / botanical grain lingering. Pleasant spiced aftertaste.
Comment
A little heavy on the oak on the palate but it's a pleasant quaffing blend.

Nose
Gingerbread ice cream, hazelnuts, clementines, fir trees.
Palate
A buttery palate of vanilla, croissant, some earthy tones, a hint of blackcurrant bush leaves and cedar wood. A hint of aged stocks in this one.
Finish
Medium, some wood spice and a bag of sandalwood.
Comment
Very pleasant blended whisky which is super easy to drink with good balance and complexity. It isn't a big, old single malt, but isn't pretending to be.
