Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Honey on toast, honeysuckle, a touch of flowers/heather and a backed apple note.

Taste

Manuka honey, sweet cereal and some caramelized apple.

Finish

Bitter walnuts covered in honey.

Comments

The honey malt indeed. Pretty decent, but a little too one-dimensional.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Very fruity (apples, pears and red dried fruits like berries etc), light toffee, a touch of blackcurrant, vanilla, high-quality strawberry ice cream, some unburnt peat, a light and malty character throughout, slightly nutty mellow oak, hints of butter, a faint touch of pepper, oak spices intermingled with a light sherry note, restrained and light peat smoke, honey-infused cream, some saltiness, flowers (from the mountains?) and lots of strawberry present at all times.

Taste

Honey, cream, a bit of smoke, light and nutty malt, dried fruits (predominantly red), butter, vanilla, minerals, some sherry (quite faint), salt, oak, fresh leather, soft tobacco and strawberries.

Finish

Medium long - ,mellow oak, some clean smoke, vanilla, cream, unburnt peat, a lingering presence of dried fruits towards the end, faint traces of liquorice, minerals, subtle leather, the light and delicate malty character is present from start to finish. 

Comments

Medium-bodied (might be the result of Dalwhinnie's worm tubs). Not the most complex whisky out there, but I find it a very charming dram and it has a lot of great flavour combinations going for it.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Neat - light honey, blossom sweetness, dry fruit, slightly tart. w/ warer - heavier sweetness, light oak, fresh fruit.

Taste

Neat - shallow, sweet arrival. Dark development to spicy, warm oily and bitter citrus. w/ water - sweet, spicy arrival. Short but warm spicy development to sweet and sour citrus ending.

Finish

Straight from the development ending in citrus.

Comments

Needs oxidization in the bottle: gets better after a few weeks. Likes water and time in the glass.. Initially rating 81. After ca. 2 weeks going to 84. 15 years being the standard expression; it needs the maturation, or better wood? Good price - quality balance.

Honey, malted barley and citrus. Not the most complex whisky ever, but not to be sniffed at. Very tasty, very enjoyable
