This is a gentle dram slightly north of average. Ideal to kick off an evening with or introduce a first-timer.

The bourbon cask is obvious (I suspect may even be a second fill) with vanilla, butterscotch and a touch of oak. The sweets come through second with apricots, some citrus and, what I strongly suspect, the faintest of chocolate covered waffles.

The texture is lovely velvet which starts off with some white pepper, honey and lemon. But then that's it really.

The medium finish is a touch spicy with oak overtones. This malt is pleasant enough but too one-dimensional to really impress me.
