"This light-bodied whisky has a somewhat waxy finish that coats with fresh golden apples and pears with a touch of honey. More malted cereal flavors emerge with a few sips mixed with green tea, sweet spices, and charred oak. The somewhat subdued finish brings in some dried fruit and faint hit of potpourri. "
