This is an extraordinary whisky for the price I purchased it for.
We start off with this deliciously golden dram sitting enticingly in the glass. As it dances underneath my nose I get a marvelously fresh scent of green apples in the middle of a spring orchard, coupled with the tropical delights of juicy pineapples. It may sound peculiar a match, but it won't seem bad as it rolls over the tongue. This merging of fruits is held together by an enticing butterscotch aroma that sends the mouth watering.
In the mouth I am immediately hit by apple juice and creamy butterscotch, taking me back to my sweet-filled childhood days. Light sugary notes tantalise my tongue while the whisky thickens into a sweet cream. The essence of the Chardonnay really hits home with the fresh and fruity underlying notes.
This whisky finishes with a cavalcade of light fruit juices followed swiftly by the surprising hint of peat smoke that seems completely lacking in harshness, but has enough to leave a light warming feeling in the throat while the dry, fulfilling finish leaves me wanting another glass.
