Nose
Mealy/mashy and cereal (wheat chaff) notes with underlying yeastiness and at the whiff of a beer cellar. Fresh fruitiness, old pear and light florals behind a touch of plasticene suggestive of youth.
Palate
Dry minerality. Light and a little tense, but a clean distillate.
Finish
Fresh and short.
Comment
Well made. Just needs time in cask to bulk up a little. Just hope they keep some back for longer term aging.

Nose
Nutty and resiny. Toasted hazelnuts. Pine needles. Hint of gorse. Getting earthy on time. Apple skin. With water, formic acid.
Palate
Smooth and soft. Even too soft. Watery at mid palate. The same resin notes. With a touch of eucalyptus. Drying on oaky notes.
Finish
Dry, slightly bitter.
Comment
A sweet-bitter whisky with an unusual taste. Some special oak?
