Nose: Classic Speyside Apple and pears, Text book nose really. Malty, with a bit of citrusy edge.

Palate: Light, the fruits from the nose are here to stay, floral even, some sugar and spice in the background. Not very complex,and quite light bodied.

Finish:Medium with orchard fruit, wood and malt.

Bottom line:

What can i say? the best selling malt, ubiquitous, and good value. It’s not going to transform your life, but it’s very popular, and as such not bad. Not ground breaking by no means.

The 21yo rum cask finish is superb... but pricey
