Nose: Mild and approachable. Vanilla, orchard fruits with a twist of citrus. Butterscotch.

Taste: Medium body and sweetness. Still fruity but more towards oranges now. Dark-ish chocolate.

Finish: Medium to short finish. Quite light now. Almost watery as it tapers off.

Comments: Even Steven. Quite OK for an entry level whisky.
