SAND gave this whisky 85 points

Nose: Very fruity with peaches, bananas and apples. Sweet cereal and vanilla (86p).

Taste: Round, quite melllow, some fruitiness, cereal and milk, slightly creamy texture, a hint of vanilla and white chocolate. Slightly burning finish. (84p.)

Takes a little water quite well (despite the low ABV). Total score 85 points.
