Pours a medium ligth pale yellow. Scent is milder in intensity, wide in it's offering. heavy on the malts, milder on the wood. Taste is powerfull, salty, drying woodyness. sharp edge to it, that I usually also have in peated whisky (though I get no peat in this one). Interesting, and so far to me, quite unique in it's aroma's. higher intensity, but remains quite friendly nevertheless. Malty finish. Very decent .
