    pear, chocolate, citrus, a little vanilla - smooth and easy.

    Cool and tingly, fades fast.

    Not much depth, but pleasant and easy to drink. Good summer scotch.

    Color
    Very pale straw, clean.
    Nose
    An oaky Bourbon edge, grassy and malty with a nice citrus note to round things off.
    Body
    Quite oily, thick legs in the glass.
    Palate
    A great mixture of honeyed sweetness with a well balanced bitter edge. Next to no unpleasant alcohol burn.
    Finish
    Medium length finish. Fruit and citrus, oak and vanilla recede nicely. A very clean finish.

    I was lucky enough to receive a sample from a friend. This is very nicely balanced with a smooth honeyed sweetness and brilliantly melded bitter edge. It is however far from what I expect with regards the intense complexity a 21 year old single malt would usually have. I'm not sure what it costs and this would effect my decision to purchase given the age and rarity of it. Taken on its own it's a delightfully well balanced dram and I'm glad to have tried it.

    Color
    Pale straw.
    Nose
    Dried summer fruit, vanilla, oak and spice. A simple but pleasant nose with a delightful air of cut grass.
    Body
    Medium bodied.
    Palate
    Some alcohol burn quickly recedes to display an array of dried fruit, vanilla custard, oak and spice. No sickly sherbet sweetness like some Speysiders I've tried.
    Finish
    Medium finish of the typical Speyside kind.

    A nice enough Speysider. Sweet but not sickly so with a good balance of fruit and spice. I only sampled a glass and alas there was nothing there to set it apart from other, more complex whiskies I've tried. That said it's not bad by any stretch and would make for a fine everyday dram.

    Gyllen og ørlitt uklar/ tåkete.
    Nose
    Søtt, vanilje, fat,
    Body
    God fylde. Litt fettete munnfølese.
    Palate
    Søt, toffee, vanlije, karamellaktig konjakklignende gode greier!
    Finish
    Lang, ren ettersmak. Ikke noe tull!

    Kanonwhisky! Noen whiskyer syns jeg får et type hjemmebrentpreg i ettersmaken. Denne gjør absolutt ikke det! Dette er en jeg definitivt vil kjøpe igjen!
