World's Best Grain Whisky 2015
Characterful nose showing plenty of oak characteristics, with fresh toast, sugared almonds, sawdust and spices. Very gentle delivery belies the higher strength.
Medium-full palate with good oily texture.
Sweet caramel and spicy oak with the strength adding depth and heat.
Well balanced creamy tablet on the nose. A touch of table salt on orange peel. Orange bitters over well done flapjacks on the palate.
A kind of cocktail bar’s secret ingredient.
Brushwood, hints of smoke, barbeque. The smell of hot, wet pine. I’m in a sauna. Dried mango and maple syrup for pudding. Hot, spicy, lots of wood. Couple of drops introduces a slice of melon, the finish is short and dry.
