Nose: clean and fruity. Vanilla with some honey. Yellow apples, pineapple and kiwi. Violet candy. Lemon marmalade. Very light oak influence. Sweet and very enjoyable. Mouth: good attack. Citrusy with hints of plums. Hints of cherry liqueur and peaches. A bit of lemon. Slightly spicy (ginger, pepper) with a bittery edge (liquorice?) towards the end. Finish: medium length, on creamy moccha and fruits with hints of saffron.

Ah, yes, this was a nice dram, which we had in Ghent. I found it rather surprising that it won from the Glenmorangie Astar in the blind contest, but there you go.

I agree the Astar is more complex and more interesting than this one, but on its own it's not at all a bad dram.
