Nose
Very fruity. Ripe William pear. Some white peach as well. A distant smoke curling up.
Palate
Smooth, round. Thick velvet. The smoke invades the palate, pushing the fruit back. Completely different from the nose. Touch of lemon drop. Soot.
Finish
Short, smoky.
Comment
Probably a young whisky, with a twoface profile. Fruit on the nose, smoke on the palate. And not much more. Pleasant but simplistic.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Like a fruit salad, oranges, pears, melons and a little cherry bitterness. There is a distant coal tar soap note.
Palate
Smoke fills the mouth and the sweetness hits a little later. Velvety and mouth coating.
Finish
Crisp and sweet.
Comment
A decent solid dram for everyday drinking, and nothing wrong about that.
