A robust and entertaining blended scotch whisky using both malt and rye derived components in great balance. I suspect a portion of the sweetness here derives from the fresh bourbon cask too but this whisky hasn’t been in these casks long enough to become overtly vanillic. 83/100
The Borders Distillery New Make Spirit review: A great base spirit for maturing. Fruity and very cereal/malt heavy – I look forward to trying some more matured variants of this in a few years time!
