Single Malt Scotch

750 ML


Product Description

EYE Light caramel NOSE Lightish nose all around, but layered with tropical and fruit notes. Some breezy notes of honeysuckle, vanilla, butterscotch, toffee and citrus float through with a bit of wood. PALATE Fruit is muddled together here on the palate and mixed with notes of dark honey, malt, burnt graham cracker pie crust, vanilla and a smoky char. Theres a darkness to the palate that wasnt as apparent on the nose. FINISH Fruit, wood, vanilla and ash go on… and on… and on… and on… BALANCE, BODY & FEEL The darkness of it pulls things in a weird direction; its a wobbly balance if you will. Medium body with a soft smooth texture. OVERALL This one I actually like and if it were around the $35 mark it would feel like a better deal. Compared to the Lismore 15 its a significant improvement but, again, whats keeping it back is that ashy darkness on the palate and finish. It seems to dull down a potentially tasty malt and at the moment its hard to justify the price when Laphroaig 10 is the same price and sitting right above it at Trader Joes.
