Malty, decently aged, not aggressive. Smells like a classic Speyside blend. Fruity, caramel, vanilla, toffee, with a hint of nutmeg and spice, plus quality ex-bourbon oak.
Smooth. Tastes at least 5 years old, with 50/50 grain and malt. Very lightly fruity, leaning more on caramel, vanilla and toffee, with evident spicy and oak notes at the back. Good cask management and blending here.
Medium. Warming. Malty and spicy, followed by dry oak. It's the best kind of finish for a young blend.
Final thoughts: better than expected, very good value, I would recommend this as a simple blend for sipping. This whisky also benefits quite a lot from time on the shelf after being opened. A couple weeks of airtime made it significantly smoother and tastier.
