Nose
Clean,very sweet and quite floral. In time a very gentle soft fruitiness comes through:caramelised pear and peach.
Palate
Very forward. Lightly nutty (giving structure) then the perfumed notes of freesia and the fruit salad effect. Chewy. Good balance.
Finish
Those fruits again. Creamy.
Comment
A lovely summery afternoon dram.

Nose
Prickly. The alcohol bite is quite sharp. Grassy then opens on cooked fruit. Greengage marmalade. Verjus (unripe grape juice).Distant smoky echo.
Palate
Not as tangy as on the nose. The sweet maltiness tames the alcohol until a spicy.burst attacks the tastebuds. Chili,pepper. And this verjus touch.
Finish
Spicy,quite green.
Comment
Is that a young whisky? It gives an impression of greenness and something unripe. Water is a must.
