Nose: quite full with lots of fresh oak and nutty malt accents. Seems they did a good job maturing the stuff, as the aroma displays the sort of richness you only get from combining different cask types. I liked it right off the bat.

Taste: initially sweet with the orchard fruit flavours typical of a Speyside malt. Dries pretty quickly, though, becoming a tad flat and bitter as it spreads through the mouth.

Finish: once the bitterness fades a decent malt and oak flavour remains for a while. Redeems itself at the last minute, it does.

Balance: not the most polished experience overall but a nice, straightforward Speyside dram nonetheless. I would appreciate it more at a lower price than what the LCBO currently charges for it.

@Megawatt an accurate review that reflects my experience. This was one of the first five single malts I tried, and I credit it for bringing me into the fold.
