Nose: Sweet honey, caramel, cotton candy. Clover, grassiness, toffee and confectioners sugar. Banana candy and light, faintly floral essence.

Taste: Medium mouthfeel, sweet toffee, confectioners sugar. Faint pepper, surprisingly oaky, and overall a very sweet dram.

Finish: Medium length, grassy essence returns, lots of toffee and sweet caramel.
