After referencing a review by Lifewaterforce on this whisky, and adding a little extra water, I realized there is a passage through the flavors of this whisky that is guided by oats and grains. The nose is innocent and inviting, and really opens up in a snifter with a little extra water. The body boasts natural flavors that I found a bit difficult to identify at first; a little water and a larger receptacle helped sort things out. The finish gives off some smokey wood tones before finding its way back to the cereal flavors. Drink this scotch with an open-mind and leave any predispositions at the door. It's really quite nice...

From snifter, slightly heavier splash of water Nose-23: fresh orange (brief), raisins, green apples, honey, white bread Palate-22: maple and brown sugar, oatmeal, sliced almonds, more raisins Finish-22: flash of peat and smoke, cinnamon sugar toast rolls through, before a warm, dry, tingly, mouthfeel wets your appetite for another taste Balance-23: a very warm comforting stroll through a broad spectrum of flavors. Overall-90

From scotch tumbler, light splash of water Nose-20: honey, lemon, white sugar, honeysuckle Palate-22: oatmeal, light cinnamon-sugar, prickly oak, raisins, table salt Finish-21: wood, florals, sea salt, shallow creek stones, moss, granola finds its way back in Balance-21: all flavors serve as an accent to cereal Overall-84
