Nose: I love the nose on this whisky. It's so fragile yet pervasive. It's like being outside near buttercups but that's overwhelmed a bit by tiny multiple (seeming) notes of honey and dried orange peel. Pithy but inviting. A real princess.

Mouth: Surprisingly rugged. Packs more of a punch than you would expect from the nose. Obscured alcohol, stewing fruits, but that all rolls off in favour of something grassy, or heathery.

Finish: Robust notes of bourbon with a syrupy reminder of the nose and the first splash in the mouth. I love it in case that's not clear!
