Really inviting and interesting nose -- apple juice, big caramel, and a very-present gardeny aspect of tomato plants and Mexican peppers (serrano, jalapeno), though that fades somewhat as the whisky opens up.  Palate -- oh, kinda neat.  mildly sweet and full of malty tones, nice warm spices, and a layering of toffee in the background. Vegetal traces. Some sips give me something like yellow cake. Finish is lengthy, and leaves me with a nice, malty mouth.  

 

I like this one quite a bit.

N: Cereals, citrus, brown sugar, and a whiff of custard.
P: Nectary and sweet (but not too sweet), medium bodied with some marshmallow and flan-like notes.   Quite tasty, goes down easy.
F: Hint of chocolate.

hmmm....first nose was really nice and then the vegetal notes came in and ruined the party.....the creams and sugars hit me first and then it progressed into a grassy farmland.  The palate was a bit interesting...almost like it wasn't sure which way it wanted to go.  It had some middle aged sherry notes and yet seemed young and bourbony also.  I give it a few extra marks for being different...

 

Certainly worthy a try.
