|Krishna Nukala||Just 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 |
|Keith Wood||Nose: Gentle marzipan wafting over Scottish heather on an Autumn day.
- Palate: Initially very smooth and creamy opening into nuts and gentle toffee. This is followed by an after-taste of slightly stronger nuts which lingers delightfully on the palate. In the longer-term after-taste a slightly floral, heather-like presence becomes much more prominent.
- Overall Impression: A nice dram, creamy, smooth and albeit not so complex, very pleasant indeed. |
|Oliver Klimek||Colour: 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. |
