Nose
Some peat. Grassy.
Palate
Sweet and slightly rooty. Candied angelica. Starts smooth and sweet, then develops a curiously fibrous dryness.
Finish
Liquorice. Pepper.
Comment
Slightly gin-like. I have preferred bottlings that had more contribution from the wood. A touch of vanilla would round out the flavours.

Nose
Crisp, malty and nutty with a light earthy note.
Palate
Sweet to start, but the wood stands slightly apart from the spirit. Young but has a delicate charm.
Finish
Lemon, then butter.
Comment
Young but attractive. A distillery to watch.
