Murray McDavid – Crafted Blend

The Crafted Blend from Murray McDavid they told us in the Twitter Tasting is a 12 year old blend that is made up of 30% malt whisky aged in a Sherry Butt. The nose is sweet and fruity with honey richness to it. A hint of lemon bitter, vanilla, raisins, oranges and biscuits. 

That bit lemon bitter comes back on the palate also but combined with the vanilla sweetness and some cinnamon dryness. 
On the palate also some oranges, honey and fruit. But also some grassy notes, raisin, toffee, bit malty, white pepper and ginger bread.
The finish is not so long and not finding a lot of depth on the nose sadly. Not making my score of this one come above the 6,5/10 for now.
