"This is a fairly straight-forward dram. It starts somewhat metallic, but then softer notes of vanilla and sweet pastry take over. Hints of tropical fruit are accompanied by tobacco leaves and char. The palate is creamy, with sweet malt and caramel the main attractions, but also some spices thrown in. Finally, a whisper a smoke and (again) tobacco."
