Nose: Next up is a change of pace! Straightforward. Malty, grainy, a touch of lemon, a touch of wax, and then some sour flowers. Turns a bit to honey and a lightly lemoned (that's a participle? It is now.) shandy - always refreshing. Maybe even faint pencil shavings in the background.
Palate: A bit light and limpid, inoffensive really. Simple here. Honey, buttery, and grain. More lemon and wax. Pinch of sugar and salt. A little watery and then a trace of wood.
Finish: Enjoyable, almost the whisky equivalent of a shandy - a drink near and dear to my heart (and stomach). This is one of those where the score is unrelated to the drinkability. It was desired to be easy going, and it's a smashing success! I'd like to lean back, kick up my heels during an early afternoon, and drink this. At the cost, there's space for this in almost any whisky/liquor collection.
