Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: waxy and buttery, creamed honey and white chocolate Hershey's kisses; Granny Smith apples, dry grassy malt and muddled mint and sugar (like the dregs after a mojito).
Palate: round, chewy and very toasty; almost a faint hint of very clean smoke? crisp citrus, white pepper, aloe and more muddled mint with sugars; white fruits and still there with a vegetal quality and toasted coconut chips; some musty earthy notes and worn old leather.
Finish: medium in length, light in body, but bright and refreshing.
Comment: not overly complex, but without flaws and very pleasant; a summer sipping whisky!
