­Nose – Sweet, honey, floral notes, grass, plum jam, some green apple and a slight citrus note.

­Palate – Sweet fruits initially, followed by a floral edge, some heather, then spices and a lot of warming malty flavours, followed by a citrus sourness and bitter green oak towards the end.

Finish - Sour and dry, warming oak, not too long with some smoke later on.

It's nice. But I'm usually looking for a bit more than nice with a single malt. No big, complex flavours particularly jump out at you, not much development on the palate and a pretty short finish. Nevertheless, it is perfectly acceptable as an easy drinking whisky.

A score of 64 would indicate that you think it is disgusting stuff and should go straight down the sink, not that it is "nice" "pleasant" and "perfectly acceptable as an easy drinking whisky." Sounds more like at least mid 70s.
