Caramelly medium brown colour. Woody, leafy, chocolatey notes in the slightly toffeeish aroma. Slightly toffeeish flavour with a little hint of nuttiness and a respectable amount of chewy, earthy malt. Some dark fruits in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours dark copper, hues of plum, medium foamy sandy colored head, spotty lacing, with very light carbonation. Malty nose, sweet, with a very soft biscuit and alcohol note. Peaty, hints of licorice, and light dark pitted fruit on the tongue. Medium to full bodied, with a fairly thick and somewhat viscous mouthfeel. Sweet malty finish, lingering spices. Slightly medicinal as well but its very subtle. Otherwise this was a fairly decent offering. I’d probably have it again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Perfect scotch appearance, but with a head. Easy malt aroma, with a fair malt flavor. A dank, musky maltness detracts overall from the experience.
