    Overall, not terribly complex, but quite pleasant.  Fairly typical from what I've experienced with Braes, and like many Braes, a decent summer dram.
    • Nose
      Light, fresh, bright.  Pretty much what you'd expect from a middle-age Braes.  peaches, hay, burnt toast?  Uh oh guys,  I might be having a seizure or something!  give it a second...  Um, nope, guess not.  burnt toast, weird.
    • Taste
      More peaches, bits of other fruit... Ach!!!  :-)  just as I was swallowing I had a wee laugh while tasting and subsequently choked on it, Which brought forth a whole whopping fruit salad to the palate.  Choking on it... Who knew that could add so much to the experience.  New tasting technique perchance?
    • Finish
      Mid-length, reasonable for the strength.
