Nose of cherries, and other berries galore. Other standard-like caramel and toffee characteristics. On the palate there's cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, and bread -- good, balanced sweetness -- and it's really tasty. Finish continues the theme at some length. This is a single malt that's bursting with accessible, enjoyable flavors. This is a great choice for a high-class party-pleaser. Yum!
