That nose was something quite exotic; the taste not so.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Brightly perfumed, lime and cedar. Seaweed. Amber, oriental spices. Sandalwood. Really unusual! Citrus and toffee; salted caramel. Wholemeal bread.
Palate: Citrus, vanilla, buttermilk – sunflower oil. Digestive biscuits, hops and grassy, with the wholemeal bread returning. The flavours vanish quickly though. A grapefruit acidity unbalances it.
Finish: A bit short, a bit bland too. Mealy, with a woody bitterness.
Comment: That nose was something quite exotic; the taste not so.
Nose: Plenty of wood, in a shed in summer eating ginger biscuits. Toasted coconut with the spicy tang of white pepper. Toast with apricot jam. Fruit and spice.
Palate: Plenty of oak making its presence felt, those creamy vanillas and custard notes. A little gentle smoke lurks with blueberries, strawberries and over ripe mango.
Finish: Long and warming with pepper spice and coffee grinds.
Comment: Something is happening in Sweden and time to take note, Packs a punch and has loads of layers to it.
