a very well priced single malt scotch, great for beginners looking to make the transition from blend to single malt or for the experienced drinker who wants a light, smooth easy going everyday drink to sip on. a sweet speyside drink, it is light on the nose with fresh summer fruit notes, mainly grapes and pear, it is slightly spicy and smoky and given time to open up in the glass a citrus aroma begins to come out. smooth on the palate, it is very aromatic and sweet. honey and vanilla bean along with a fresh fruity note are the first to be noticed. the development is subtle and the strong smoky finish creeps up slowly but brings with it an overpowering charred oak taste that hits you right in the back of the throat. personally i find this has an excellent balance between sweet fruits and subtle smoky peat. i would definitely recommend this drink to all, but be wary if you don't like a peaty finish there are sweater whisky's out there for you.
