Nose: Freshly sliced apples, honey, gentle vanilla, citrus, pears, cereal. Smooth, light and pleasant, albeit a bit ordinary.
Palate: Smooth and oaky. There are some nice light floral notes interwoven with orange, vanilla and honey notes. The oak is certainly more pronounced than I expected, which is a pleasant surprise.
Finish: Sweet, gentle finish. Light oak, honey, pancakes, cereal, and gentle floral notes remain for the duration of the somewhat short finish.
Thoughts: This stuff is pretty much what I expected it to be. It will neither offend nor impress. It’s pleasant, competent, and light. But in the end it does lack a bit of character or edge. The 16 year old Nadurra or the 18 are significant steps up, and I’d recommend them over this one in a heartbeat. But this will do the trick if you’re feeling casual.
