Nosing: Green Apple Green Apple Sweet Sweet Oak

Taste: Green Apple Green Apple Green Apple Spices Spices Spices Oak

Finish: Spices Spices Oak Oak

Comment: Green apples are very present in this whisky, some say pears also, but I only was able to pick out green apple, both on the nose and the taste. This whisky is very simple, not much to figure out, but is still very good. There is a very impactful spiciness which takes over after the green apple dissipates, but is not over powering. This finish is somewhat dry but short and leaves me wanting more. Very good whisky, very easy sipping, well priced, can’t go wrong.
