Nose: Fresh and complex, sweeter floral notes combine with more rich crushed cashews, cereal, a touch of oil paint with citrus throughout, especially orange.
Palate: Granola with satsuma and chunks of melon in thick yoghurt.
Finish: Slightly fragrant cereal and grains - more savoury as less of the fruit follows through. Tasty stuff!
Overall: A wonderful whisky this, from a distillery whose single malts we don't see enough of due to their importance in creating the Ballantine's blends.
