An underrated malt in my opinion. A light floral aperitif, suitable for summer evenings in the garden. Defines a whole style of light mostly speyside malts aged in mainly ex bourbon casks, with minimal smoke or peat influence.
Nose: Floral sweetness, honey, honey suckle, vanilla. Taste: Floral flavours dry, with touches of cinnamon spice, sultanas and vanilla. Finish: Short drier still and the spicier notes lingering.

@markjedi1 Thanks for the review. It indicates to me that it could be worth a try although its priced rather high here compared to other aged blends and even single malts. I couldn't find a review of the standard NAS bottling anywhere here on the site, have you any experience with it? I guess its a few shelves too low for most here.

Please disregard the previous comments as it was intended for another thread and I'm not sure how this has been mixed up.
