The aroma initially shows a dark side to the whisky with rich, dark amber honey and lemon zest that has been lit and set in your cocktail. Oak is fairly pronounced as well. As you drink, however, those notes become brighter and sprightly. There's a mouthwatering aftertaste filled with dried fruit that entices you to go for another sip. This is a fairly easy and straight-forward blended whisky. If you're a fan of their standard bottling, this one is a nice step up."
