Tasting Notes
Oliver KlimekColour: Dark gold Nose: Notes of spices, vanilla and mixed fruit but a little harsh. - Palate: Apricot, honey, vanilla, cloves underlined with grain. - Finish: Long, fruity and slightly rough. - Overall: At five years of age, this grain whisky has not yet lost all of its harsheness but there is already a quite remarkable variety of enjoyable flavours. With ten or more years longer maturation it should have the potential to match any fine old Scotch single grain.
