Nose
Wet and slightly burnt grass. Daffodils that have stood in water for too long. Cereal. Wet wood. With water very plain with a light plastic note. Flowers underneath.
Palate
Very dry and austere...not letting anything out.
Finish
Grubby. An old cellar.
Comment
If this was in a better cask it would have been a rather pleasant whisky.

Nose
This started curiously, like the underside of a sheepskin rug, mushrooms and a little wood-glue. It soon settled down and fruity notes appeared, freshly cut red grapes, lemon, and sweet warmed bread.
Palate
Lemony with malty breadiness.
Finish
Relatively short, and a little sweet soap.
Comment
Had potential, but a shame to see such a poor cask bottled.
