Hi, and welcome to your new hobby. You actually picked a good scotch for your first bottle. It's gentle and sweet and won't scare you away.
I couldn't find an introduction to tasting article on our host's site, though it could be there somewhere. Utilizing Google, you can easily locate an article from the "malt maniacs" who put together an interesting and comprehensive "beginner's guide" to single malt whisky. It should be required reading for all those new to single malt whisky. Check it out. It will get you up to speed in no time at all, and well ahead of many of your local whisky "experts".
