Glass: Classic Malt
Bright yellow gold
Initially fresh with hints
of citrus, soon followed by hay and straw which linger for some
time. After some minutes (4-7) in the glass it gains an aromatic
herbal quality whilst retaining leafy and grainy undertones.
This is definitely what I call a countryside or outdoor whisky.
Some of those outdoor qualities
transfer to the palate but it is also much more robust in
flavour with butterscotch, creamy toffee and a hint of banana
stem. In fact this has plenty of fruit after a few minutes with
the most prominent being mango and peach which lead into the
Long and fruity with just the
slightest hint of coconut.
Overall Impression: Batch #2 has many similar
characteristics to batch #1, but this is definitely more mature
as it has lost that spiritiness and gained more fruit. A very
nice 'anytime' blend indeed.
