Nose: Speyside sweetness and fruitiness. There is a lot of honey and pear in it. I could keep on nosing for hours.

Taste: Sweet and fruity (lemon?) on the palate, not much body. Hints of smoke, but very very discreet. Ideal dram for a hot summer afternoon on the veranda.

Finish: Not very long. The honey lingers on for a few seconds, but fades away quickly.

This is a nice&easy whisky, not very complex, but very amicable. For a little bit more than US$20 and with 43%, it's a great value.

Sailorman is correct on everything. I had the same experience and consider it my dram of choice when I want something sweet that I don't have to work for... like grabbing that candy bar in the store on your way home... you know it will satisfy the sweet tooth and lull you into a comfortable place late in the day... or before breakfast! After experiencing all the regions and many expressions, this is a laid-back whisky that truly is an easy, summer drinking dram. niiiice, simple, smooth and lovely.
