Tasting notes
Nose: Sweet and fruity notes of both green and red apples together with yellow pears, vanilla, honey and pie crust. The oak is noticable and there’s a feint grassy overtone. This is very easy on the nose.

Mouth: It starts out mild and a bit watery. The honey sweetness together with butterscotch, vanilla and baked apples gives it a dessert-like profile. There’s a slight oakiness and a spicyness on the tip of the toungue.

Finish: The fruitiness is at the center, but the vanilla comes through very strong giving it a warm rounded flavour. The rest of the flavours are still in there but subsides and gives room to the oak, which is dry but not astringent. There’s not very strong flavors in the finish, but they find a way to linger in the mouth. This is not very complex but well made as an accessible whisky.

Additional information
One of the most famous single malts in the world. It’s matured first in traditional (refill) oak casks, and then finished in first fill ex-bourbon barrels.
