Was poured extra afterwards for a better review experience. I would call this a very inoffensive, fruit and malt centric single malt. Nice weave of stone fruits and tropical fruits, honey on the nose. The palate kicks in with a nice sweet wave of fruit, with touch of grassy vegetal notes, not much complexity. Touch of spicy heat towards the end. I would’ve thought it was a much younger malt at around 15 year mark. Given the current price, definitely a no-go for me.
