Nose
Aromas of toasted toffee and fragrant but a little high-toned barley. White fruit, chicory, malt biscuits and herbs follow. Slight feintiness in the background.
Palate
Like the nose the palate opens with the toasted toffee and hard barley. A little industrial with some malt and subtle herbal notes. The toffee becomes increasingly burnt in character and begins to dominate.
Finish
A little hot and tart with plenty of mineral notes and lingering barley.
Comment
It has its plus points and its minus points. I would avoid diluting it though!

Nose
The first aroma is of Victoria sponge cake, almonds and sweetened whipped cream. Somewhat the aroma of a WI cake stand at a village fete. As it settles in the glass, the raspberry jam notes become the most prominent.
Palate
Another whisky belittling its ABV, this is all cream soda, honey roasted almonds, cinnamon and pink grapefruit. There is a touch of green herbs too.
Finish
Cola cubes and black cherry.
Comment
Perfectly drinkable whisky, only the harshest of task masters would be disappointed with it.
