Nose, Taste, Finish and Balance are graded out of 2.5 each:

Nose: Like a slice of malt loaf soaked in a sweet green peppercorn sauce. On a second nosing the raisins from the malt loaf start to really come through, and does a citric sweetness accompanied by an almost bread-like aroma. Truly mouth-watering. 2.5

Taste: Very light-bodied and nimble on the tongue. The citrus bounces off the palate with a fair amount of zing, as the moist malt loaf beds itself underneath. 2.0

Finish: Vanilla makes a late entrance to the proceedings, and adds a nice finish to the departing malt loaf. The sweet green peppercorn sauce comes back to round things off, this time the tingle of the peppercorns softened by a smooth shortbread base underneath. Sublime. 2.5

Balance: If there was an extra category for aesthetics, this bottle would be very difficult to beat. Add another category for price-to-quality ratio, and this whisky simply cannot be beaten. Such delicate and well-contructed flavours, with an approachability that makes it a must-have every day whisky. No whisky cabinet can be complete without this blend. 2.5
