I am not the most experienced reviewer and am writing it as i see/smell/taste it. I have heard this referred to as the "entry level" expression by Glen Moray. I wouldn't disagree.
Upon pouring into the glass you see a very fair, light coloured liquid which appears to have a silky quality. If given one word to describe appearance I would choose pale although this doesn't really do it justice. It looks very inviting.
Nose: fruity, fresh, light, sweet, honey, juniper berries, spice. It has a subtle bouquet and is very inoffensive.
When you drink You get a crisp, sweet, citrus tingle with an oak undertone. This gives way to a stronger honey and lemon wave which mellows and softens. Rolling spices followed by a nutty wave.
The finish is tangy, spicy and very pleasant. It is not overly complicated and doesn't leave a legacy. You are left feeling it was nice but could have delivered more. Remembering that this is a gateway or entry level drop you can't argue.
Pleasant and enjoyable but forgettable.
