The nose on this is about as light and fruity as it gets.  The palate is more malty though still quite light.  I can see how this would compete with the Glenfiddich/'Livet drinker who wants something a bit lighter and fruitier, but there's not much substance to it.

n: swimming pool in a spring clover field

 

p:  Mostly harmless.  Light grains.  Like a good blend.  Nothing to laud, nothing to fault.  Actually it's an easy sipper for thinking about other things.

Ries
 

n: initial is wet green vegetation on a hot summer day. Malt and honeycomb wax, dried papaya, and clover.

 

t: light, so surprisingly light I would think this had more water added to it to make it so easy to drink beyond the stated 43%ABV. This could be a plus for some whisky drinkers. Very light and floral, taste is of low calorie clover honey on wheat crackers, drying to oak in the finish. 

 

Nothing to get excited about, I prefer bold whisky to capture my attention.
