Distillery: White Oak
Nose: Apricot nectar, a tinge of floral scents; dandelions. Smoke from burnt tyre rubber. Biscuit dough, yellow apple and crunchy nut corn flakes.
Taste: Light. Thyme, a hint of liquorice, sweet minimal waft of smoke, massive attack of ginger and small apple vinegar spice.
Finish: Short-medium. A finale of dried thyme, anise and sweet spice: ginger.
Comment: This tasting is from a recently opened bottle. I have tasted this on a few occasions, and I thought the 5-year-old to be adequate but average. Despite its age it has enough character to carry itself on a dedicated tasting.
