Nosing: VanillaSweetGreen ApplePineapple
Light and fresh. Vanilla and light fruit notes of apple and pineapple. A sweetness that reminds me of icing sugar.

Taste: SweetFruitMalt
Light ,sweet arrival. Malty with fairly non specific fruitiness.

Finish:
Medium, fruity and dry.

Comment:
I got this bottle as an experiment, I've been working my way around Speyside malts recently. This is frankly a little disappointing. The nose is ok if a little subdued. The palate isn't my thing at all. It lacks the intensity of flavour I'm looking for. The finish is a bit of a non event. This isn't to say its badly made, its really not, I just find it largely uninteresting.

Finish: mild and short-to-medium in lenght.

Comment: A bit on the light side so I definitely wouldn't add any water to it. Pleasantly surprised by this one actually. Great quality/price that could easily make this a daily go-to.

Nosing: SweetVanillaGreen ApplePineappleCherryMint
Sweet vanilla and toffee, hints of fruit and a subtle musky smell that I can't pinpoint.

Taste: FruitAlmondsMaltOakDark Chocolate
Fruity, sweet with subtle hints of almond and a slight chocolatey taste

Finish: NutsAlmondsMaltDark ChocolateOil
The finish really brings out the nutty flavour, almost like pineseeds and almonds with a rich chocolate and oily aftertaste.

Comment:
Overall I like this whisky but it isn't my favourite. It's far too subtle for me and I don't feel like it has a great amount of complexity; however it is a great whisky for the price, and well worth having as a go to for guests. It has no alcohol burn at all and so it suits well for an everyday dram.
