Nose: Sweet wood and fruit. Prunes caramalised in brown sugar. Muscat. Polished cedar. Green apple skin.
Taste: Savoury. Herbal bitterness with a bit of salt. Lavender extract. Vanilla cookies. Floral smoke. Bit rough on the throat.
Finish: Medium long and dry. Oak. Slight smoke. Similar green apple as was in the nose. The oak lingers.
Comment: I didn't like this much at first. I think its because the nose promises something very desserty, but the taste delivers something much more herbal. There is also that lavender extract that pops up shortly after the first sip, which takes some getting used to. But the finish is quite nice. This whisky has grown on me. I've had better drams, but for the price I paid this is pretty good value.
