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.

Sara Smith

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 light 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.
