Nose: caramelized apples, oak and lemon tart, rather fresh.

Palate: Sweeter than the nose, with ginger candy, oak, raisins, tangerine and citron. Gentle on the palate with not a lot of body, but very drinkable.

Finish: medium. Nutty and semi sweet.

All in all this is a fine dram, but nothing to get all excited, It’s fresh, with some sherry notes, and lemon and citrus ouotlining. Nice for a summer evening here in Israel, or as an aperitif. Not very impressive, but again, as a young 40% entry level dram (it’s not the youngest, as they also releaser a ‘Classic’ NAS expression) it delivers. Pricing is fair, yet I think you can do better at that price range.
