Nose
Soft and estery with pineapple, melon, banana, peach, pear and fragrant barley. Some taut citrus and a subtle minerality adds a little counterpoint to the tropical fruit.
Palate
Soft, milky and barley. A little watery and underpowered but full of the same estery, tropical fruit tones as the nose. A little more herbal and tartly citric on the middle.
Finish
Long and herbal with lingering barley, light honey and perfumed fruit. Maybe it's become a little too perfumed?
Comment
A wonderful fruit bomb of a malt but a bit too perfumed to want more than one dram of this at a time.

Nose
This is a young and playful nose with hints of soft vanilla ice cream, damp wool, lily of the valley, white musk and cinnamon spice.
Palate
Some spicy elements added to the floral bouquet. It feels a little underdone at first but after time some nice copper and spice notes appear, adding to the vanilla and lily, making this a rather unique malt.
Finish
Copper, vanilla, foam banana sweets.
Comment
This needed air and some time in the glass to come to life. Once it did, it revealed a unique flavour profile which was enhanced by a tinge of sulphur, unusual for a single malt.
