Member Ratings and Notes
Vanilla and bakery tastes with light spice.  Kind of reminiscent of Mackmyra.  Tasty and easy.  B+/A-

Retaste: Nose is light, oaty, vanilla.  Palate is delicious, lighter but flavorful, and as the nose -- bakery, vanilla, oats and wheat, yum.  Grassy aspects too.  Medium-to-full sweetness, and delicious!  A-   [Interestingly, I thought I'd never tried this before, and only realized it was a retaste when I came to enter these notes... nice to see there's some consistency in my palate!]
Smooth with hints of vanilla and yellow cake.  Perhaps a bit too light, however.

Retaste 7/09 :  Palate was bland grains.  B-  
Lightly sweet and grassy, melow, but not simple - a very pleasant finish lingers for quite some time. An excellent expression of this style of whisky. 
Nose: light and clean with very light pears and some malt and grass.
Palate: Strong malty punch, sweet with hay and grassy notes.
Finish:  Very grassy. 

A solid malty number.  B/B+
