Colour: Light bright yellow gold. Snide remarks from some of my dinner companions about it looking like “urine after you’ve had a lot of apple juice”. Surely the 6 course degustation with matched wines we’ve just enjoyed couldn’t have anything to do with them being so free to offer such smart-arse remarks…
Nose: Light, almost floral sweet honey notes.
Palate: Sweet pepper flavours. Light heat.
Finish: Bit of peat, but not much smoke. Medium length.
Comments: I was a little disappointed in this one to be honest. I’ve been really getting into a lot of whisky released by independent bottlers recently, but this one didn’t really do it for me. It’s not a bad whisky, it’s just not as special as I was hoping it might be.
