Nose: light and fresh, and really reminds me of apple crumble with a fresh citrus-y apple-y tang combining with oaty, malty goodness. There's also pear, a little honey, maybe aniseed and some delicate spice.

Palate: Tropical fruit, that didn't really come through on the nose, now make an appearance with juicy pineapple bursting on the palate. Some vanilla and an oaky edge. Not much depth here, and a mid-palate that is a little weak; but perfectly drinkable.

Finish: apple and almonds with ginger and crisp barley bite; just a little short.

This is a good whisky, and understandably popular; but it is a bit noncommittal and gives up too easily on the palate. Definitely not bad, but not challenging for a top spot on my favourite-drams list either.
