Nose
Hugely estery aromas of pineapple, apricot, melon and banana with a touch of greengage. Lightly herbal and botanical. With time the aromas become quite taught and mineral.
Palate
Lightly honeyed and again full of generously fleshy, estery fruit – pineapple, apricot, melon and banana. Just a smidge of oak comes through on the middle along with the botanical / herbal notes.
Finish
A little short with a slightly spirity finish.
Comment
A lovely malt, which runs out of steam a little on the palate. I would have liked to have seen a little more oak interaction.

Nose
Light barley sugar, green beans, coconut shavings, and some floral wax.
Palate
A touch of something sweet and perfumed – a little blackcurrant jelly and rose water. Again showing signs of youth though.
Finish
Short, with a lingering hedgerow fruit note.
Comment
Another young'un. Signs that greatness is on its way.
