Comment: All very pleasant, but a pretty one-dimensional experience. No-one could be offended by this, but no-one will be excited either.
Palate: Lightly smooth. Sweetish, but well balanced. Almondy. Clean.
Comment: Pleasant. Easy drinking for a pre-bourbon novice. Perhaps a little unfair to judge it in this company.
