Nose: delicate and fruity, peaches, apricots, grapes, a hint of oak.

Taste: sweet, with all of the fruit flavours listed above expressing rather strongly and quickly. The oak is clearly present and develops more strongly into the finish.

Finish: the peaches and apricots last moderately, then fade, with grapey flavours continuing longer and oak is what you taste strongly at the end. At the time of this review the finish is quite quite long.

Balance: this is a very pleasant and very fruity little whisky. At the time of this review the reviewed bottle has been open almost a year, and the flavours seem to me to have become more assertive and to have lasted longer than they did in my earlier tastings of it. The balance is nice overall, and I would agree with those who comment that this would make a great aperitif whisky, and also a lovely warm-weather fruity sipping refresher.

Not sure I agree entirely with the definitive flavours, but it is fruity. Where I do agree, big time, is the view that the flavours improve over time once the bottle is open.
