The Nose: First whiff...tequila. Hola. Muchos Gracias but no, tequila is not the nose I want with my Scotch. Floral and light, there was vanilla and sweet citrus, tangerine maybe, with a hint of fennel and wood spice.
The Palate: Lighter mouthfeel. Vanilla notes mixed with spicey, youngish tones. There was something mildly salty about the taste as well. Refreshing and crisp.
The Finish: Medium-ish. The spicy quality hangs around a bit.
Thoughts: I found the tequila nose thing kind of a turnoff, but then again, I'm not the biggest tequila fan. Nothing really jumped out here, otherwise. It was a little plain-jane. Very accesible and refreshing...just...not...yeah. It was ok, not what I would think of as a traditional Speyside malt.
