Tasting notes
Nose: At first, there’s a savory and grassy peat note coming through, but it’s quite thin on the nose overall. Some fruitiness can be found but it’s so feint it cannot specified. There are also hints of vanilla, honey and butterscotch.

Mouth: This a thin maltiness swimming in water together with vanilla and butterscotch notes. It almost feels like there’s grain spirit in it which can be connected to the presumed young age. An assorted fruit note comes through with a hint of cinnamon. The peat smoke is a bit toned down and it’s very mild.

Finish: Surprisingly, there are nice tropical fruit notes appearing, but they disappear quite quickly and leave a bland oak note and some ashy leftovers from the peat. Overall it’s not a bad array of flavours, it’s just muted, like listening to music through a wall.

Additional information
The content in this bottle isn’t disclosed, but the brand McClelland’s is owned by Morrison Bowmore, so it’s a good bet that the content comes from the Bowmore distillery.
