Nose
Crisp, grainy but subtle with oiled Guyana-esque dried fruit. Edgy and brittle oak vanillins; light sawdust intimation. As the oak begins to dominate, the aromas retain freshness.
Palate
Grippy and gritty American oak; hints of coffee. Sultana dried fruit follows with a touch of dried apricot. Alcohol and tannins build but the light oils balance. Just!
Finish
Superb finish. Back-end loaded. Herbal with a coal smoke note. Sweeter as the rum-like fruits burst through the drying, grainy tannins.
Comment
Is this a 25 year old grain whisky? It certainly feels like one. Very impressive.

Nose
Juicy Fruit chewing gum, this has light tropical fruits all over it, backed with a good hit of vanilla ice cream.
Palate
The ABV isn't apparent as this is smooth as silk on the palate, hitting first with the vanilla flavour and moving swiftly towards delicate oak notes. With water this becomes a real drinker.
Finish
Slightly soft finish with a hint of tinned pineapple and grapefruit juice.
Comment
Dead easy to drink, neat. Even easier with water. Once opened, don't expect this to sit around. It demands to be poured and polished off. Not for sipping!
