Distilled by GlenDronach, this release brings a port finish, though there isn’t ample information regarding the finish time on an already NAS release. Bottled at 46% ABV.
Bright, fruity, jammy on the nose. Light, a bit of sawdust, honey and toffee. Red berries, faint stewed fruits.
Thin on the palate. Sweet, jammy. Berry forward, but not super complex. Cherry, lingonberry, a faint smoke character. Hint of pepper. Jammy, sweet, lacking some complexity.
Short finish, some sweet berry, caramel, cream.
I was hoping for a bit more complexity to be honest. It’s fine and fun, but it isn’t complex or particularly well integrated, which kind of tells me this is a younger release with a wet cask finish and they just don’t mesh that well.
