a dram too far

Appearance

Just a touch lighter than mid gold in colour, syrupy swirl line, medium thick legs.

Nose

Lighter on the nose, cut grass, menthol, spirity again, custard creams, ethanol, seared pineapple rings, a slightly meaty note, very faint cherry note too.

Palate

Furniture polish, lemon meringue, it’s very light tbh. Vanilla, and I’m struggling a little with this one to be honest, it’s very light on flavours throughout.

Finish

Short/medium in length, char, oak, grapefruit, chilli’s, mint Aero choc bar.

My thoughts

I really did struggle with the vagueness of this whisky, try as much as i could i just couldn’t find much on the palate, the nose and finish are the best parts, its kind of neutral, though would most likely mix well.

Would i buy a bottle?

No its not for me. I very rarely drink whisky mixed, i prefer it neat, so i just don’t have a reason to buy one to be honest, though i’m sure others will have a use for it.
