Young, characterful malt which will be fascinating to see how this develops if given more time in the cask.
Blended Malt, First Edition
No age statement
Year of Bottling
Nose: Youthful, estery, oily. Sweet barley, pineapple chunks, apricot and acacia. Citrus notes add freshness and balance the oils. With time, American oak.
Palate: Opens with young, oily apricot and barley with citrus and mineral notes. A light sherbet character. Quite herbal on the middle. Pleasantly deep and full.
Finish: Long and lightly gristy with the citrus and minerality making the finish feel a little austere, although the oils counter to a certain extent.
Comment: Young, characterful malt which will be fascinating to see how this develops if given more time in the cask.
Nose: Light, bright corn, toasted grain, and straw, followed by creamy vanilla.
Palate: A flash of sweetness to start, with notes reminiscent of boiled sweets and \nlight apple, followed by a much longer-lasting flavour of dry, fresh wood.
Finish: A light finish of dry cream soda and rolled oats.
Comment: A no nonsense, robust spirit that is engaging in its simplicity. Elementary, but enjoyable.
