3.5
3.5 out of 5 stars
No bottling/batch code. Light copper in color, mild oak spice and caramel apple nose with some doughy grain peeking through. Fair bit going on on the palate: some smokiness upfront, baking spice, young oily malt, fruity apple, and grassy/herbal bitterness that lingers on. Fairly light-bodied, a few drops of water brings out more fruit and the young malt, not that helpful. Interesting but ultimately gimimicky concept, blending 5 different whiskies together for one bottling. Not bad, but it doesn't quite cohere, and the malt isn't to my taste.
