      I was looking for a bit of variety in my Scotch selection and landed on this as something new to try. This taste is neat from a glencairn. It was allowed to rest for several minutes after the pour. The bottle has been open for a few weeks and is about 3/4 full. In the glass this shows as a burnished brass. A swirl shows thick sheeting and slow large tears. The nose on this is delightful. It is quite fruity. I get elements of tangerine, pineapple, some green apple, and strong hints of confectioners sugar. There's a lot going on in this glass. This whisky is finished in tokaji wine casks. I have no idea what tokaji wine tastes like, I have never seen it nor heard of it before this bottle. What I can say is that it brings a complex sweet fruitiness to the nose that is simply addicting. On the palate this is not quite as rich as it appeared. Slightly creamy, but certainly not over the top in any way. The mouthfeel is silky, but perhaps just a little bit thin in comparison to my expectations. The flavor profile includes sweet citrus fruits, ripe orchard fruits, confectioners sugar, yellow cake with vanilla frosting, a slight bitter golden oak note, and just a touch of white pepper. The finish is satisfying if perhaps just a bit short. There is a good barrel note, a bit of vanilla - the ghost of the bourbon barrels it was aged in no doubt. This is a lovely homage to a speyside profile. Consider it a playful Highland malt and you'll understand. This is quite a treat. The nose over delivers, but the taste profile is solid. Easily approachable, honey and complex fruit, nice mouthfeel, and a good sense of presence. The only thing that keeps this from being a truly world-class quaff is the curtailed finish. I most assuredly recommend this.

      Light, sweet nose with a pleasing, lingering finish. I was trying to determine what the finish taste was before reading the notes: cinnamon for sure. Didn’t get apples.

      Very good - initial spice nicely followed by honey that lingers for longer than expected.
