colour: light amber.
nose: malt, sweet fruit- pear, apple, peach, soft background oak, honey, vanilla, heather, slight undertone of smoke, attractive.
palate: coating, sweet fruit, malt, decent tongue buzz.
finish: sweet fruits, malt, oak, vanilla, honey, background smokiness emerging, well balanced, decent complexity.
notes: Lovely. Nose is very attractive, sweet, gentle though flavourful. Background smokiness in finish tops this whisky off perfectly. Nothing is overwhelming, all is balanced to provide an excellent dram. Big thumbs up.
