Member Ratings and Notes
Nose of apples, with hints of rosewater and ginger. Palate is mildly sweet and lightly fruity with the apples continuing, and a spicy mouthfeel kicks in midway. Moderately-long finish adds complexity, becoming dryer, with more freshly-picked apples (the cooking kind without tons of sweetness), and floral stuff reawakening and wafting through my nose. One of those whiskies that's got a number of things going on, but all very lightly -- so as to make me wonder if there's really as much going on as I think there is... or is there any difference? Anyhow, fine to try. 
N: Sweet white wine, apples, a little lime, caramel, wax.
P: Clean and refreshing, fruity, big on apples, gets slightly watery before the...
F: ...finish which is slightly tart and fizzy.
Pretty decent stuff, would go well on a hot day.
