Familiar bourbon-casked nose (at least it seems so) of honey, pinot grigio, and light peanut brittle.  The palate is almost exactly what the nose advertises, vanilla and graham crackers, with some extra light nondescript spice.  Rather sweet, and darn drinkable... it's a good "spot-hitter" (as in, it hits the spot if you need a basic but good scotch).  Long finish continues the theme.  This reminds me very much of Oban 18.  B+/A-
