Aroma: Creamy rich candied lemon and honey. Light floral notes & the tiniest hint of vanilla. Some oak develops with water but no spice.

Taste: Light, silky, slightly sour. Light to mild bodied. Just a touch of sweetness on the tip of the tongue. Lemon, tea & honey. Tannins are present that grip the sides of your tongue giving it body & structure.

Finish: Is all slightly sweet & sour lemon w/oak. Crisp, short & spirity.

Comment: 84/100 - I always keep a Lowland in rotation simply for the reason of changing things up or giving your taste buds a breather from the peaty or sherried malts. Worth a try for those reasons or if your looking for a lighter more delicate dram.
