Tasting Notes

"Pouring a light hay hue, this whisky shows an interesting nose that combines classic malt tones of heather, toasted biscuits, and golden flowers with more vinous aromas of green apple, lemon flesh, and baked grapes. The palate shows a malty character and a pleasantly chewy texture with further white fruit flavors emerging. A tasty, if uncomplex whisky with a round and balanced finish."
