Nose: Gentle and and fairly closed. Notes of pear, oregano, varnish or paint thinner, eucalyptus, pepper and salt. Okay it doesn’t sound closed but it’s a few days between whiskies and I’m picking up more than I would normally with this one. Palate: Smooth and soft, mainly malt and cream. Some nutmeg spice and a little pepper. Finish: Short, simple, a bit dry or dusty. Then, a mineral-like quality and bamboo shoots.
Last Word: This is a uncomplicated malt, easy to drink, nice enough, but lacks complexity.
Rating: 70/100
