Tasting: Sweet sour. Bananas, brown paper, orange peel, vanilla, cardboard.

Reminds me of bourbon (which it is, really), and a poor one at that. Cardboard all over the place. Marginally better than the previous blend.

Verdict:

Not bad.

Official bottling
Blended malt 
Golden
43% ABV
Dram

Nose: Marker pens, cereal, cardboard, rope, grass. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, smooth, loose. 
Tasting: Salty. Oranges, pears, cardboard, grass, hints of oats. 
Finish: Short. Bitter, oats, grass, rope. 

Comments:

Strange-tasting sort of blend. Quite salty on first taste, but that evaporates to something more herbal. Shame about the cardboard - that sort of note really kills a whisky.

Verdict:

Not bad.
