Nose

One of the best noses of any Scotch whisky.  Easter candy-coated marshmallow eggs, fruit punch (cherry, apple, pineapple, orange, grape), almond paste, clover honey, and some candle wax.  A few drops of water bring out some lemon/lime notes as well.

Taste

Fruit and slight floral, crushed roasted almonds, sea salt, spiced malt, oak wood, perhaps a bit of citrus and a touch of ginger.  Perhaps a bit of leather/tobacco, but only a hint.

Finish

Very short and unremarkable.  Thin.  Maybe a hint of smoke, but nothing that lasts.

Comments

I love the nose!  It’s enough to make up for the weak finish.  The palate is very complex, and makes for a very intriguing tasting experience.  It’s worth the price.  A very good value in the $50 price range.  With a better finish, this could be a 90.
