Member Ratings and Notes
Mild sweetness and fruity, fruity, fruity.  One of the most bubblegummy fruity whiskies I've had to date.  Water brings out Honey-Nut Cheerios and changes the profile without diminishing the enjoyment.  It could be smoother, but I like this one a lot. 
This malt can be an A- or a B- (I'll explain). At it's best it's like tasting a flowery spring day. Perfume and honeysuckle. In can be finicky and hard to find the sweet spot however. I've had great luck with this following an Islay. Also, adding just the right amount of water (not much) is critical in opening it up. 
Oaky and fruity malt nose, more of the same on the palate, long and crisp finish.
