Tasting Notes
Krishna NukalaJust like standard text book Spey side whisky like the one Maniacal group tasted at Blair Athol distillery in June 2003. Mild dried fruits like prunes, some camphor from the oak wood. On palate mild spices some bitters like orange peel, nice enjoyable dram
Oliver KlimekColour: Dark amber - Nose: Prunes, nuts, hints of kiwi and polished wood. - Palate: Prunes, grapes, cinnamon with slight herbal dryness. - Finish: Long and fruity. - Overall: Quite a nice malt with some sherry influence, but not in an overwhelming way. It's not the most complex of drams but it provides genuine sipping pleasure.
