Nosing: Green ApplePineappleVanilla
Fruity. Like apple/pineapple juice from concentrate. Vanilla

Taste: FruitCaramelPineappleSpices
Sweet and fruity. Candied pineapple. Creamy with peppery spice.

Finish: FruitOak
Short to medium, fruity with some oak showing through. Finishes slightly sour.

Comment:
I picked this up in a half bottle format just to try. I think this is a good standard release and at a fair price. It lacks a bit of intensity on the palate for my tastes and I found the finish a little disappointing. I'd definitely say it was a good beginner's malt though, it's quite approachable and readily available.
