My first pure grain scotch. Halfway through this bottle.
Nose: Reminds of bourbon, sweet, vanilla, nail polish accent, candied, fresh and fruity.
Body: Light but with a finesse to it, a soothing spice, dilute syrup with a little creaminess to the mouthfeel. Smooth delivery.
Taste: Starts of like bourbon but far more refined and balanced, vanilla, sweet, medley of fruit, a mocha like note developes and then fresh ginger. Sugary then a iced tea like note.
Finish: Shortish medium but the sweetness persists as a lull. Gentle and warming. Very nuancey. Butter.
Not your typical scotch but very enjoyable neat. I don't see myself drinking this solely but I think everyone should have a bottle of this or similar handy to add some variety to the rotation. A more elegant style of scotch and should be ideal for the summer months.
