nose: fresh pears, green apples, lemongrass, some sherry, fresh sandalwood, yeast, typical floral Speyside notes.

taste: pear cake, vanilla, fermented dough, hints of sherry, overall a sweet yeasty flavor.

finish: not that long but nice oak balance with again flavour of pear and a pleasant malty bitterness.

summary: extremely well balanced single malt, a modern single malt whisky (ex bourbon plus extra maturation) as it should, exemplary but at the same time with not much peaks. I must admit that I am not a big Speyside fan, but this dram lacks of some particularity... like a lot of beautiful women with no extra-something that you cannot explain... I miss a distinguishing mark, it's highly enjoyable but it doesn't intrigue me.
