It's cheap, and it's noticable.

Color
Amber
Nose

Sweet apples, canned pear, floral, faint vanilla undertone.


Taste

Initial impression is bland before some spice arrive, not much though.

Sweet bourbon vanilla.

Some artificial feel to it.


Finish

Weak and short.

Watered out impression.

Slightly bittersweet and drying.


Comments

As a pure malt vatting I find it rather disapointing and boring. But then it's marketed as a mixing malt.
