Omar Fitzell Notes
Light, young and spirity. Mix of vanilla, green apples and a touch of milk chocolate.
Very light and delicate. Rose petals is the first thing that hits me followed by some toffee.
Slight pepper spice joins in towards the end of a short finish.
Notes are sparse here but unfortunately, so is the whiskey. A bit one dimensional, but for the price, can one complain?
Al Higgins notes
Light and grainy with some delicate citrus, mint and white flower aromas.
Soft, juicy and light bodied. Some dominant grain whiskey flavours with soft vanilla, lemon, green apple and mint flavours.
Very quick with some light oakiness, vanilla and ginger.
A solid blend that may be lacking flavour but also has a soft and very drinkable quality to it. In other words there is very little to dislike about this, but at the same time don’t expect the earth to move.
