This is a review of a newly opened bottle. I will add updates to reflect significant oxidative effects, as needed

Nose: very pungent combination of refined high-pitched wine fruitiness, rosewater, carnations, vanilla, "old oranges" to which Mr. Murray alluded, and a maltiness showing sweet lemon. A very nice nose, with a nice balance of sweet and dry

Taste: the fruitiness is still here on the palate, but the barley comes out much more fully than in the nose. The body is thin and light. There is vanilla and citrus together with the grapiness. Very tasty

Finish: the fruit and malt flavours do a long finish on a rather astringent dryness, which is a bit much, even for a dry-whisky-lover like me

Balance: there is balance in nose and on the palate, but not on the finish. This is pleasant when you want these wine flavours in an easy drinking 40% ABV whisky, but I find the finish to be a disappointment

An excellent and sharp review: 'More or less echoes my freshly opened bottle exactly. My bottle would be an excellent first Whisky in any tasting,(to which you have alluded).
