This is incredibly easy to drink, but lacking in complexity and interest. The nose has hints of grass and a bit of citrus. Upon first tasting it, I get a strong buttery flavor, almost like buttered toast. This gradually develops into a kind of caramel sweetness before slipping into a really strong grass flavor.

The finish is really unremarkable. This is what makes it so drinkable for a novice - there is no burn as it goes down. Right after swallowing it was as if I hadn't had anything to drink, the finish just disappears.

This malt is inexpensive, and easily the most drinkable Scotch I've had, so someone new to single malts might want to start here. It lacks real complexity, though, and I find it rather boring.
