Nose
Pear drops, fresh apricot, star anise, vanilla and dream topping.
Palate
Spice is the order of the day here, which overpowers the vanilla a little, but does provide a foundation for some red berries and rhum agricole notes to flourish. The sweetness of the grain is again the order of the day here with brown sugars mixing with spices.
Finish
Crème brûlée topping, roast chicken flavour crisps and toffee apple.
Comment
Oddly balanced, I can't work out if I'd mix this or drink it neat. The latter shouts louder, but only just.

Nose
Sweet. Cream soda, icing sugar. Candy shop scents. Touch of marshmallow.
Palate
Sweet and smooth. Satin like. Tastes like a soft drink.
Finish
Short and sweet.
Comment
A series of three light character sweet whiskies. Same family? Probably. They all reveal sweetness but this one overdoes it.
