Nosing: TOP Vanilla Tropical Fruit Coconut Oak MID Vanilla Pear Grapefruit Sherry BASE Pear Oak

Taste: Vanilla Spices Oil Oak

Finish: Sherry Oak Peat Smoke Pepper

Comment: Light Gold in colour, with large thick fast running legs. Nose starts with a vanilla and tropical fruit top note with hints of coconut, mid layer includes an addition of pear and grapefruit and the base nose layer includes more pear and oak. Taste starts with a fruity note, but then is surprisingly spicy, a hint of oil, oak for sure and vanilla is also present. The finish is sherry, oak, peat smoke and peppery spiciness. 8.5 out of 10

Nosing: Fruit Pear Vanilla Oak
Fruity with pears, some vanilla oakiness. I don't get much of the coconut, but there is a flinty mineral character to it as well.

Taste: Sweet Vanilla Fruit Pepper
Fruity arrival, sweet, but not overly. Vanilla oakiness, develops into a peppery spiciness.

Finish: Oak Fruit Spices
Medium length with good intensity, lots of spicy oak and retains a good deal of fruitiness.

Comment:
I picked this up on offer at the supermarket, its definitely a good value proposition as the quality is definitely there. I'm not the biggest fan of the nose, and it lacks a bit of complexity, but there are definitely some things to like.

Taste: mild spiciness Sweet Vanilla orange zest Malt Oak Honey Fruit white chocolate with coconut Nuts

Finish: medium with gentle hints of oak and spices Vanilla milk chocolate

Comment: Incredibly smooth and pleasant on the palate. Reminds me Scapa Skiren and Hibiki Japanese harmony actually)). This whisky is an example of a Scotch for beginners. I highly recommend to try it!))
Nosing: Vanilla Caramel Date

Taste: Vanilla Caramel :anise:

Finish: Medium finishMedicinal Smoke

Comment: Picks up the flavors of the bourbon barrels. Most definitely the sweetness. A smooth, somewhat sweet and enjoyable dram that's not terribly complex, but a very good drink for the price (USD 40).

Overall not very complex. Sweet, smooth, satisfying yet light warmth. Will try the three wood before I decide to re-buy.
