Member Ratings and Notes
Nose is fruit and some kind of glue.  Palate is sweet, pleasing, and mild-bodied with mild complexity.  Finish is medium-length and warm.  This is generally just a somewhat typical warm, sweet, light fruit & spice malt.  Nothing crazy going on here, but an enjoyable whisky. 
N: Caramel and spice cake.
P: Spicy, sweet, and malty.
F: Some heat builds in the finish but cooled by the sugar. 
Nose: Pleasant, fruity and floral.
Palate:  Matches the nose at first blush but falls a bit flat and tastes a bit watery, malty notes come in at the tail.
Finish:  Malty.
