Tasting Notes

"There's a noticeable sweetness from the PX casks, but it's not extremely well integrated. Sweet notes of dates and brown sugar, but also leather, peat and oats. The palate serves up a better interplay between sweet and smoky, with a pinch of salt thrown in. Overall not the most balanced whisky, but it certainly does its job."
