Initially the aromas are quite shy, but there is plenty of dense, slightly spicy oak along with soy sauce, wheat flakes, dried balsamic fruit and a light spice note.

With time some grainy spirit puts in an appearance. Slightly watery with sweet spice, dried sultana, white grape and oak. Hugely tannic with some creamy notes attempting to offset, and like the nose some grainy spirit notes.

Dry and tannic finish, with the grainy spirit prevalent. It feels like a moderately aged grain whisky which has succumbed to the oak.
