Nose
Soft for such a high ABV. Dried fruit, sweet berries, herbal grain and subtle smoke. Bourbony' oak with chunks of sweet vanilla, coffee and peppery spice. Spirit keeps the oak in check.
Palate
Herbal and earthy with dried fruit, spice, and oak. Big, boisterous and bourbony! Awash with vanilla, coconut and sweet coffee.
Finish
Long and spicy with the sweetness of the dried fruit balancing the alcohol and grain notes. Succulent with wood tannins adding a bitter twist to the finale.
Comment
Who says grain whiskies have no body? A fantastic, middle aged grain.

Nose
Gives off the traditional notes you expect from a grain at high strength (acetone, pine wood chippings, pear soap and vanilla) but with a hint of age in there too, giving body.
Palate
Direct, with grapefruit, lemon and lime. Could well be the concentrate for Tanqueray 10.
Finish
Flint and lemon juice.
Comment
A classic example of a grain that has probably had a good couple of decades in cask, but could do with a few more. What harm would it do to leave this for another twenty years or so?
