Nose
Sweet, clean, almost malty.
Palate
Sweet syrupy, perfumy.
Finish
Cedary, dryish. Appetising.
Comment
A good example of a single grain as a pleasant dram, though that is true of several in this tasting. If someone gave me this whisky in a bar, I would enjoy it, but I have yet to find a single grain that has the complexity of a great malt. That seems unlikely to happen.

Dave Broom

Nose
Very gentle and soft with sweet spice notes. Vanilla, toffee, lemon/orange and cigar smoke.
Palate
As the nose suggests with an extra (Greek yoghurt?) creaminess. Soft, sweet and gentle though the spiciness stops it becoming too soft. Great texture.
Finish
Long and soft. As on the palate it's the feel which seduces you as much as the flavour.
Comment
Can a whisky be mellifluous? If so, this is it. Needless to say the distillery has been bulldozed. Ironic, huh?
