The nose is gaseous (almost farty), with caramel. The palate -- this is interesting! Lots of earthy and mineral stuff. Definitely some spices of cinnamon and clove. I mean really, really interesting. Long finish. Weird, but good! A-/B+
The nose is a light sweet sherry. Like candy. My first taste of this was great -- very sweet, but light. Dufftown seems to be a good aperitif malt. It has a delicacy to it that other whiskies and flavors can mask easily. Honey flavors come through with the sherry, still light and delicate. Not a bad whisky -- would be good to introduce someone to single malt. Very approachable, girl-next-door quality.
