Nose: Soft yet tangy berries. Vanilla and Honey, a very slight whiff of smoke. Floral but not overpowering. Maybe a slight touch of spice. This is mellow and relaxing, yet satisfyingly complex.

Palate: Quite strongly floral, with lavender at first but quickly calms down to malt and honey. Slightly cerealy - I don't get the fruits so much on the palate. Smooth and velvety but it does become a bit flat and is disappointing compared to the very promising nose.

Finish: A bit of redemption here - long, fairly dry and the fruits do now return. Pleasant sweetness lingers for a considerable time.

I'd mark this into the 90s if the palate had sustained itself. Nevertheless, this is a very pleasant, calming and easy drinking dram.
