Nose
Full, fruity and estery – pineapple, apricot, banana skin and barley with a delicious thread of perfumed white fruit and honey. Late hints of earth, grass and a sweet grain note.
Palate
Soft, full and fleshy with hints of natural caramel. The caramel takes the edge off the voluptuous fruit but the barley still shines through. Seems to be a light, herbal spirit note.
Finish
Medium length with a light mineral and possibly sweet grain finish. Lightly coffeed aftertaste.
Comment
It comes across as a well put together blended whisky with a high malt content.

Nose
Oatcakes, hay bales, Lyle's Golden Syrup. Not a huge amount going on here to be honest.
Palate
The palate gives off some tropical fruit and a little bit of tobacco leaf and oak spice, but this is not a very complex or particularly challenging dram.
Finish
Soft and simple.
Comment
A whisky for beginners, but a good launch pad. Look what NASA has given to the world…
