"There's a moderate level of sweet toasted barley, golden syrup, and fruit notes like dried apricots and raisins. The profile leads you on some more trail mix notes of nuts and dried fruit. Although the proof is fine as it is, feel free to add a splash of water in to soften up the dram even further. Overall a solid dram. "
