Tasting Notes

Nose

A floral perfume of bluebells and damp moss.

Palate

An early sprinkling of clean malt quickly disintegrates into something too oaky, hot and rugged for it's own good.

Finish

Tired, one-dimensional malt and offers a degree of sweetness against the drying and bitter oak.

Comment

Despite the low mark, pretty good by Coleburn standards. The nose and finale are impressive.
