Age: 21 years
Type: Single malt
Strength: 40%

Date: 01-11-2018
Nose: Raspberry, wood, yellow plums, overripe apple, banana, a hint of citrus.
Flavour: Wood, milkish, lychee, a hint of toffee, a hint of pear, light pepper, a hint of nuts.
Body: Smooth, light greasy, light creamy, a little sharp alcohol.
Comments: On the surface it's got plenty to show for, but with zero depth and no flavour development it's going nowhere. A great starter though.
