Nose: Vanilla orange creamsicle; then orange honey-butter, chalky and with some potpourri.

Palate: A sweet-as-sugarcane blood orange, big & juicy. Becoming lemonade with raw sugar granules (and with a sprig of mint): simple and refreshing.

Finish: Not too much here. Oak wood and lemon peels linger. Hints remain of the nose's orange honey-butter.

This is a very well balanced and refreshing malt, only losing points for the the shallow finish and overall relative simplicity. Among other quality light malts, it holds up well against the Glenfiddich 21; In comparison this Glenmorangie has less complexity (and subtlety), but its flavors are bolder.
