Color: Straw colored, pale gold.

Nose: Granny smith apples and moss, with a strong burning sensation. After a few minutes, the burning sensation lifts and floral notes move to the fore, along with vanilla and honey.

Body: medium, oily.

Palate: Smooth. Sweet Taffy with hint of smoke and pepper.

Finish: Quick, strong burst of pepper. Slight hint of sweet beef jerky. At the very end the taste of apples returns.

This was a very pleasant whiskey, but not particularly complex. A little something for everybody, but not one to stir any deep passions.
