Amber gold coloured with a pleasant if uninspiring aroma, slightly fruity with some damson plums, lightly spiced with a touch of sandal wood about it.

Well melded flavours greet the palate, very mild mannered stuff. With time I found hints of cappuccino coffee, vanilla, plum fruit and a faint maltyness, but I may be clutching at straws. A touch of bitterness comes in with the finish which is welcome as a definite flavour, reminiscent of Darjeeling tea, a touch of ginger cinnamon like spice also makes an appearance in the drying profile.

All very pleasant but really this is an infinitely forgettable malt, all the life seem to have gone out of it.

It's subtle, yes, but I wouldn't personally go so far to say it's lifeless. To me it's a good summer dram - something light and malty that really comes into it's own during the warmer months when heavy, full flavored scotches just seem too overbearing.
