"A very approachable expression with a rather honey-forward nose boasting notes of fresh orchard fruits, peaches, oak and a subtle smokiness. The palate delivers more honey, sweet spices and herbal/earthy aromas. All that said, the obvious lack of depth and subtlety makes the whiskey overall a disappointment. "
