Nose
Oaky. Damp wood.Hint of mushrooms. Then sweeter notes.
Palate
Round and smooth.Verysweet. And then a contrasting bitterness which floods into the mouth.
Finish
Oaky.Bitter. Walnut stain.
Comment
Some sort of a finish? It overwhelms the distillery character. Too bad, because the core is good.

Nose
Rootsy,horse chestnut casing,vegetal.
Palate
Apple pips,sharp citrus fruits then astringency from tannins, suggesting age.
Finish
Sharp spice,long and thrusting.
Comment
Okay,but this is the malt equivalent of the choreography in X Factor; too much going on to the point of distraction
