Nose: Fragrant. Cereal and fruity. Cooked apples and pears. A biscuity note. Appetising. With water, a floral touch.

Comment: A pleasant dram, definitely on the sweet side. The nose is more appealing than the palate.
Nose: Bags of sweetness here akin to apple pie – a mix of malty pastry and flowery apples.
Palate: The sweetness is complemented with a spiced note.The fruity note is still here too.
Finish: Drying and morish.
Comment: A decent example of a grain whisky. One to watch.
