Light color, oily!, very slightly sweet, lightly peated, pleasant burn on the finish.  Nose of turpentine.

Balvenie-ish. Sharp and warm, like a knife. Clean finish. Oily. Light smoke at end. Nose is gasoline-ish. Thin, warm. Hot toddy-ish finish.  
JS
 
Sharp initial bite; taste is floral and sweet, even a little buttery or oily; little to no peat; clean finish.  
PD
 
I like. Buttery. Tobacco nose.  
Sku
 
At 16 years, the malt has overtaken the fruit on the nose, but there is still substantial fruit. The fruit on the palate is now more of a dried fruit variety with plenty of malt on all sides; there's also a slight sulphur note. It still has a fairly light character and is quite sweet.
