From Richard Thomas: "McKenzie Pure Pot Still Whiskey has no additives, is not chill-filtered, and comes bottled at 40% abv. Although the label bears no aging statement, the constituent whiskeys in the blend are aged for a little over two years. The packaging is typical of the McKenzie line: a fat, pot still-shaped clear glass bottle with a label design reminiscent of an Old West saloon, and topped by a plastic, copper-colored stopper with an artificial cork.
In the glass, the whiskey has clear pale gold coloring. Taking in the nose, I found it oddly crisp and leathery at the same time, the former coming from the coppery tinge. There is a sweet apples and pears side to the scent, along with a slight oaky note.
On the palate, the whiskey has a lovely, silky texture. It has that malty, grainy kind of sweetness (not so apple-ish anymore), along with notes of caramel and oak, and sometimes I thought just a bit of fresh pine as well. The finish starts from the neutral, silky texture of the whiskey, taking its time and trailing off into a moderate, slightly peppery warmth."
