Nose: Very fruity. Overwhelming orange zest, honey, plum.

Taste: Sweet, creamy, lots of citrus and honey, tea, grapefruit. Also a floral tone in there. Got some apricot as well after a few sips. The palate is very consistent with the nose. A pretty rounded taste, really mouth filling dram.

Finish: Quite long, spicy and smoky. Sweet with a touch of bitterness that gets more noticeable after a while.

Conclusion: A very rounded and pleasant whisky, with citrus and honey dominating. I think this is very accessible even for novices. Maybe it lacks a bit in complexity, but overall it feels like a quality dram and "easy" to go with. Also, for me the fact that it's a 15 year old shows that it has been given the time needed to reach a certain point of maturity where it 'works'.
