A straightforward clean young whisky. Water to tame the alcohol bite.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Fresh, slightly tangy. When aerated, the fruit comes out. Redcurrant and gooseberry bring in a fresh touch. Lime zest, aniseed. Obviously young. More aniseed. Drying grass. Sweeter notes. Butterscotch. Vanilla yoghurt. With water, Williams pear.
Palate: Sweet maltiness. Very flowing like light silk. Fizzy feel on the tongue. Vanilla syrup. Kiwi fruit. Water cuts the edges and enhances sweet cereals.
Finish: Slightly biting, dry and crisp.
Comment: A straightforward clean young whisky. Water to tame the alcohol bite.
Nose: Needs a little time to open up, but then there is lots of orchard fruit and a citrus hit. Sweet honey notes, caramel muffins.
Palate: Malt loaf and butter, an aromatic fruity note too, exotic fruit salad, a lovely barley sugar edge, runny honey.
Finish: Clean and sharp.
Comment: Young but shows great promise.
