Nosing:
Vanilla Fruit Green Apple Malt
Sweet scent of vanila and fresh light fruits mixes with pleasant maltiness. Very light on nose with no noticeable alcohol. Juicy apple and a ouple of peppery peaks reached my nose.
With time more honey-like and caremel flavours develop.

Taste:
Vanilla Caramel Ginger

Initially sweet, develops into more acidic fruity tones. Oily. Something herbal and stingy, like ginger with a hint of pepper mint, stays for a while on tongue and palate. Next sips bring nice oak, malt and more apples with some a little bit heavier and sweeter fruits.

Finish:
Medium, fruity, oaky and smooth.

Comment:
Quite lovely dram in a decent price. A little bit flat and preatty simple to drink, but yet sippable.
