Member Ratings and Notes
Nose of happy and light fruits, caramels, and something oceanic and slightly fishy. The palate -- nice! -- great and tasty, and on the lighter side of single malts. Lightly honeyed, with apple, caramel, and vanilla. Whatever that oceanic thing in the nose was, I don't know where it went. Slight tinge of cocoa. This is massively drinkably whisky, no doubt due in part to the 40% ABV, but mostly due to the tasty flavors! Not much of a finish (well, something very faint kinda lingers, sorta) but I don't care. Great party whisky, I think it would be hard not to enjoy this.
N: Fruity / floral, grassy.
P: Light and buttery caramel with a nice firm bite.
F: Erupts into pink bubble sweet sugar goodness.
This one really takes off in the finish and is an all around clean n' tasty malt.  And I even think the bottle is purty.  (Note:  It seems Adam and I may differ on when the finish starts.  I think he's high on goofballs, but at least we can agree that it's real good.)
