    No age statement. This whisky, previously aged for an indeterminate period in used oak casks, was finished in virgin oak casks. This explains its pronounced oak taste and the mild tannin taste (not unpleasant). Beneath these tastes was a rich taste of cane syrup which reminded me of my childhood experience of Roger's Golden Syrup on bread. This taste faded into a long peppery finish. Good value for the price.

    Tasted and scored this three days ago at the Highlander Pub. Did not review previous notes or score. This are my notes and score three days later at the Ottawa Single Malt Fellowship tasting. Grassy with spices and light smoke on nose; hint of smoke and floral notes on palate; fresh medium dry finish.

    Grassy, mild with floral notes on nose; soft approach with dry grass on palate; light smoke on a medium finish. Very pleasant and a particularly good buy at $40 CDN.
