Subtle - fruity, apples and pears. A hint of smoke. Really gentle and light. Not complex, but thoughtfully balanced and very pleasant.
The taste is gentle, soft and melts into your mouth. Still subtle, but more sophisticated than the nose. Sweet caramel, honey and oak. Hints of raisins and spice.
For such a gentle soft dram, the finish is surprisingly long and warm - spiced honey with fruity notes. It lasts a minute or two, but leaves my mouth watering and refreshed.
This is a genuinely elegant malt with what feels like a very sophisticated balance of flavours. It's really light - so do not drink it second after pretty much anything else, but as a first dram, it is really subtle, elegant and thoughtful dram.
