Nose: Pineapple and vanilla with a hint of ginger. Also freshly cut green apples, as well as a nice touch of honey. Some pencil shavings. Taste: Creamy with hints of red apple and marshmallows followed by soft notes of honey. Slightly floral with a touch of pepper. Not offensive, but not very impressive either. Finish: Stewed apples and some bitter wood. Mildly spiced. Medium in length.
A decent whisky that won’t knock you off your socks, but gets the job done. I rate it a tad higher than the new Founder’s Reserve.
