The nose: floral, vanilla candy sweetness, and maybe the most odd note I've smelled in scotch... unripened melon The pallete: very light, earthy, hay, the palate tastes like a hay barn smells The finish: light, short, and iodine. Not like Islay iodine, very faint. Overall, this is the friendliest easy to drink scotch on my bar. I didn't have high hopes going into this tasting but it far surpasses some of my other easy drinkers. This one is going to stick around for awhile.
