N: Peaches, mangos - pretty tropical, it's like a Scotch smoothie. 

P: Strong guava, light lemon. Nicely lightly sherried.

F: Relatively short, but leaves a nice floral taste with you.  

 

Big fan of this flavor profile. Drops off a little harshly on finish. Definitely will pickup a bottle though (drank my friend's - thanks Ryan!) 

Solid B 

Ries
 

n: honey in herbal tea, nice malt nose with a very light sherry influence. Wet green grass, menthols and that's about it.

 

t: has an interesting initial taste - a wheatgrass shot with a heavy dose of honey. This is very light and soft with a unique green vegetal aspect (but not floral). A hint of peat; it is a very light smoke and has the taste of burnt newsprint. Oaky dry finish with vanilla caramels in the finish. Overall a decent but somewhat uninspiring whisky, mostly notable for the unique vegetal quality in the beginning.
