A mix of malt and yeast without any depth.
The mouth is desperately missing any complexity. Just a kind of useless bitterness, I mean a bitterness which does not enhance the whisky.
The finish is of the same kind.
Not really the bottle to buy.

A second tasting, months later, just confirmed the first impression. Just a good whisky...

Undoubtedly a good sample of Speyside whisky. The well balanced nose is not too complex. A hint of spices. The palate confirms this first nose impression. But one could be surprised to know this whisky has spent 21 years in a cask. One could expect some more from a whisky of that age. The finish is relatively short, and confirms the spicy impression.

The nose is clearly on cereals with a hint of spices (pepper) and a touch of sweet citrus fruit.
In the palate, an impression of smoothness too, with a slightly acid touch, vanilla hints and a very discrete nut hint on the background. A nice range of tastes, however without an evident contrast which would give it the complexity it misses...
A quite short finish between wood and pepper, where both ingredients are rather diluted.
