It is somewhere between the Sunray and the (slightly better) Tailfire, almost as if the two were mixed together. Very friendly priced at 25 to 30 EUR. Lovely entry level malt, but nothing more.
The nose is honeysweet on honey, toffee, oatmeal, nougat and almonds, with some famer’s butter and baked apples. A hint of oak and even a lost raisin.
The arrival is soft, not quite creamy and mildly spicy. It is even a touch astringent and dry. It is all about baked apples now, followed by nuts and a hint of cherries.
The finish is short and leaves the mouth a bit dry, with a salty edge at the death.
