The nose is slightly spicy and develops rather smooth fruity hints, ripe apple, melon.
n the palate, smoothness dominates too, honey and fruits on a barley background with discrete spicy touches.
Finish is quite pleasant, however too short.

Quite a nice floral nose, nicely perfumed with fresh fruity hints.
The palate confirms the fruity smoothness announced by the nose wit an addition of some honeyish fragrances, but no complexity and no surprise. Quite pleasant however, even if it's too smooth according to my own standards.
The relatively long finish contrasts a bit with the mouth as smoothness makes clearly room to alcohol which seems to have a great deal of it's aromatic richness.

The nose does not detect malt or pepper as with Edradour, another distillery of this region. Slight discrete hints of spice characterise the smell of this rather dry whisky, though pleasant to drink. This Provenance version gave me a quite better feeling than the official 12 y.o. one, although the finish is too short and the whole does not have much depth. But it is a good bottling, which has its place in each good whisky collection.

A rather discrete and perfumed nose, with honeyish sweetness.
In the palate, the same impression of sweetness with a malted and slightly spicy background. A relatively short finish, but not unpleasant.
This whisky is too sweet for me, but I can imagine other people really can like it.
