Nose: fresh and soft with lots of fruit, especially plums. At first sniff, could almost be mistaken for some type of European brandy. Light vanilla and citrus. Smooth and appealing.

Taste: an immediate hit of fresh ginger, followed by drying oak. A bit zingy on the tongue. Gently perfumed without seeming cloying.

Finish: more dry oak but the sweet vanilla-lemon flavour lingers.

Balance: a fresh, youthful, uncluttered style of malt, somewhat reminiscent of Arran malt in bourbon casks. Very lively stuff with lots of character. The oak can seem a little mouth-puckering at times but overall the experience is well-rounded and immensely enjoyable.
