Tasting Notes by Megawatt

Nose: subtle. Malty-sweet with orchard fruit and hints of oak. Gentle and well-balanced.

Taste: No complaints here. Light- to medium-bodied with moderate sweetness developing into oaky dryness, with the lightest touch of smoke.

Finish: Unspectacular and easy-going. Lightly smoked and rather short.

Balance: this easy-drinking malt might be too light for some but it finds balance between fruity sweetness and oaky dryness. A classic Speysider that often gets overlooked due to its wide availability.
