Experienced whisky taster and reviewer Mark Dermul gives us these tasting notes and comments:
Nose: The nose is very spirity and grainy. Close to the new make, it would seem. Mostly white fruit like apples and pears, sweet malt and some white sugar. Not much else, though.
Taste: It is oily on the palate and thanks to a mild mix of peppers shows a little more character. But still rather flimsy. Very sweet and again rather spirity.
Finish: The finish is short and sweet.
Comments: This is a little Craigellachie. Nice to have tasted, but nothing to be on the lookout for.
