Nosing: Früchte Ananas Birne Vanille Süße
Heavily fruit led and aromatic. Fresh pear and pineapple. A touch of vanilla, overall sweetness. I'm not sure where all the tasting notes of peat come from, I can't detect it anywhere in this whisky.

Taste: Früchte Malz Honig Gewürze
Intense sweet mixed fruit arrival, transitions into intense maltiness and honey sweetness and oak spiciness.

Finish: Malz Gewürze
Medium to long, and quite intense. Residual sweet maltiness transitions into dryness.

Comment:
I spotted this at a local supermarket and having never tried it before thought I'd give it a shot. This is very much a great all rounder. The nose is fruity and inviting. The palate is punchy and intense, and the finish is long and enjoyable. I'd say its definitely a value proposition at the moment. Like I mentioned earlier, I'm not sure where all the peat tasting notes come from, perhaps this release has changed a bit in the last couple of years. Either way, I'd definitely recommend it.
