Nose
Very soft and very oaky with a gin-like botanical character. I'm sure I can even detect some juniper! Hints of lightly oiled dried fruit and with time earth.
Palate
Soft and simple with gentler, more toffeed oak and oiliness. Brief hints of dried fruit and the grain nips gently along with a touch of gin-like botanicals.
Finish
Medium length and quite grainy with late hint of mocha and lingering botanicals and toffee.
Comment
It could almost pass for an oak aged gin!

Nose
This is a really easy nosing whisky which gives lovely soft vanilla, white flowers and Cool Whip. It doesn't do anything astonishing, but it doesn't do anything badly either.
Palate
There is a good dollop of spirit at the heart of this whisky, but the surrounding flavours are quite vibrant, with peaches and cream and some Mint Aero chocolate bar.
Finish
Mint choc-chip ice cream gives this whisky a rather strange feel, as it moves from sweet and soft to minty vanilla.
Comment
A little unbalanced. With some tweaks this has potential to be a lovely dram.
