Nose: Light, sweet (cereal and honey), fresh cut grass, with a trace of smoke. Palate: Very floral, citrus, honey, over-ripe fruit Finish: A little spice, some alcohol and sweetness. Comments: More complex and interesting than your average lowland malt, this is an everyday kind of malt. While none of the flavors are terribly bold, this is a good dram. A great intro into single malt Scotch. Stands out among low land whiskies, but is a bit of a light weight. Definitely a step up from the 10yo.

I just had a tumbler of this whisky before dinner as an aperitif. Instead of writing a new review, I must say that I wholeheartedly agree with this one (cannot confirm last comment as I've not yet tasted the 10yr old).

I had the audacity of adding a cube of ice to my drink. It didn't diminish the savviness (is that a word?) of the dram.
