At first glance, this chap is approachable, unassuming and maybe even a little boring. But get to know him a little better and you will feel embarrassed for putting him into a box.

Ok, as fun as that was, I don't want to overdo the metaphor!

Bottled: 9/4/2013 Opened: February 2014

Nose: Pear, apple Palate: Pear, caramel, oak, raisin, smoke, medicinal Finish: Slight burn, pear, oak

Overall a very light, easy to drink whisky that suits a relaxed evening setting. However, if you pay it some respect there's plenty of complexity there and it's all relatively well balanced. You might say it has a certain understated elegance.

The only drawback I found was that the experience was on the short side - the flavor doesn't linger long in the mouth. But at the same time that's also what makes it the perfect choice for everyday occasions.
