Nose: A very sweet and gentle nose. Almost no alcohol burn from this dram. Right away you get freshly cut pears, followed by hints of green apple. These two aromas are what predominate this dram throughout. Floral notes are also prominent once it begins to settle down in the glass. There are hints of citrus notes, blood orange to be exact.

Palate: Refreshing on the palate. Tastes somewhat like apple juice when the tongue first encounters it. Followed by a slight taste of black pepper. Once it's held for a few moments, it goes into a very vibrant oak and pine flavor. Hints of pineapple also hit the palate here and there.

Finish: Oily finish. Slight ( on the swallow)smoke, but mostly a pine nut and oak finish predominates. Lasts in the mouth as an oily, creamy vanilla,flower petal, and lemon tea finish.

It's a very straight forward whisky. It's not complex. The nose is wonderful and always inviting. The body is light and sweet. The finish is decent. This is a perfect whisky for someone new to single malts.
