Light esters smoked barrel oak, nutmeg?
Seems light and airy
Oak, herbal
Clean finishing. Not long might turn bitter
Totally reminds me of Dewars. Very decent every day scotch.

Light – Dewar’s like
Heavier than Dewar’s. Oatmeal
Slight smoke, cherry
Better than Dewar’s. A lot of character. My favorite Midlands single malt by far. Surprisingly Ok.
