The elegant bouquet is rich, gently sweet and generously malty. The palate entry is slightly salty and faintly peaty; at midpalate the grainy sweetness returns with traces of green vegetable, mint and black tea. Finishes with the tea flavor dominant. A good introductory island malt of finesse and substance.

Straw gold. Aromas of a sweet shop-vanilla, honey, marshmallow, and confectioner’s sugar. Light to medium body, and soft. Clean flavors, which are very malty and honeyed, with notes of marshmallow and vanilla. Gently sweet finish.
