Nose
Very closed at first, this is quite spiritus but opens up with time to reveal grapefruit, fresh linen sheets and vanilla. A hint of salty sea breeze, raw milk.
Palate
Green grassy, young banana skins, black jacks and real lemonade. Again, quite waxy.
Finish
Very little finish but what is there is like a sweet shop, penny sweets and brown paper bags.
Comment
This is a pick'n'mix whisky, a bit rancio on the finish but there are some sweet moments if you look for them.

75
Nose
Honey, salted lemon, wet sand, ozone and windswept florals: gorse and daffodils. Flattened with water.
Palate
Salty wood dried out in the sun, hints of liquorice, fresh pear, lemon and lime.
Finish
Drying and hot with some bitterness.
Comment
Quite sharp, it felt like the cask was a little weary.
