Nose is wonderful, with sweet dark cherry, vanilla, and sherry wine.
The palate is a letdown though. I get a bit of chocolate and raspberry. But it's not that pronounced and the flavors are somewhat weak. It's very smooth and drinkable though. Just, boring. Needs more.
The finish however is fantastic. Long and spicy, with a drying oak. The sweetness stays in your mouth for minutes.
This would be a nice everyday kind of scotch. Smooth and sweet, if kind of boring on the palate. But the nose and finish almost make up for it.
