Once in a while I run into a whiskey where I raise the glass to my nose and the nose makes me think I'm about to dig into something really special. This was one of those experiences. The nose is fruity, with a light smoke and whispers of a nice complexity. So far so good.
For this bottle, the nose betrays you. The taste on the tongue is bitter and anemic. There is a light smoke, and perhaps a light fruitiness, but not much. Instead this tastes watered-down and frankly boring. The best parallel I can draw is to the Singleton of Glendullan or a blend like Glenlivet.
Of course, if you are an organic product zealot and a single malt Scotch lover you are afforded few choices and this is one, but if you're willing to tolerate grains grown non-organic this is not a bottle I would recommend.
