Morrison's Tasting Notes:
Nose: Pear and some distant orange, some sweet vanilla toffee.
Taste: Gently tangy, apple, pear, distant orange, mild barley sugar sweetness, a little spiciness, some creamy caramel.
Finish: This light malt has a refined medium length finish with some gentle fruit, spice and a little oak
Comment: A wonderful, very enjoyable lighter style Speyside whisky which is sure to please, a lovely tangy fruitiness, barley sugar sweetness, gentle spiciness. Would make a great pre-dinner dram or ideal for a warm summers evening. Ideal for those new to the complexities of single malt whisky and the connoisseurs looking for a enjoyable mature gentle style Speysider.
