This is a blended whiskey.
Colour: Pale gold.
Nose: Nicely grainy and nutty, with lots of freshness, developing on the trademark banana notes as well as a little apple and grape juice. Also a little toasted cake, hints of mastic and a very faint smokiness. Very inoffensive, round and ultra-clean.
Mouth: Fruity, direct, cereally and again very fruity. We have mostly bananas, dried pears, coconuts and cornflakes. Not weak at all, with a finish that’s medium long, still very fruity and also slightly caramelly.
I think I like this better than most regular Scottish blends, for it’s cleaner and livelier. A perfect summer aperitif.
