Original cost of
this bottle; €€€€€
Glass: Classic Malt
Colour: Dark yellow gold
Very aromatic and sweet with suggestions of buttery toffee and
mild wet leafiness in the background.
Palate: Definitely a
suggestion of buttery toffee, perhaps cereal too and is that a
faint hint of ginger?
Overall Impression: I love the character of this whisky.
Mild and gentle but yet distinctive.
