Tasting Notes and Technical Description:

Visual Appearance:
The whisky showcases a light golden color, emanating hues reminiscent of sunlit straw. The liquid forms slow, elegant legs upon swirling, signifying a balanced viscosity.

Nose (Aroma):
A bouquet of fragrant aromas greets the olfactory senses immediately upon pouring. Notes of fresh orchard fruits like apples and pears are prominent, accompanied by subtle hints of vanilla and a delicate floral backdrop. A soft layer of toasted oak lends complexity to the nose.

Palate (Taste):
The first sip reveals an upfront fruitiness characteristic of Speyside whiskies, with green apple and ripe pear leading the charge. These fruity aspects are tastefully counterbalanced by malted cereal, vanilla, and subtle undertones of honey, creating a harmonious flavor profile.

The finish is medium in length but leaves a lasting impression. It ends on a slightly spicy note with a smidgen of white pepper, accompanied by an enduring maltiness and a final flourish of oak.

The texture is smooth and almost creamy, enveloping the palate in a satisfying experience that invites continual exploration.

Enjoyable but awfully mild

For the price, there are more complex and interesting whiskys out there, but this will always be a welcome presence in my glass (particularly if someone is buying). Light citrus and strongish honey on the nose. Medium body, some honey and lemon on the mid palate. Well made but aimed at a softer palate than my own.
