Hard barley and iron on the nose; pervasively industrial with tart gooseberry and lime. A touch of creamy oak appears, but not enough to mitigate the distillery ‘character’. The palate is more hard barley and creamy oak to begin with, but the industrial notes creep back through. Good and spicy in the end, with the industrial notes lingering to a creamy, toffeed after-taste.
