Nose
Very little giving out on the nose. A hint of vanilla and… nope, just a hint of vanilla.
Palate
Surprisingly fresh, with a big grainy hit of green banana, zesty citrus fruit, pineapple chunks, coconut and other tropical fruits.
Finish
Grapefruit, more pineapple (tinned this time) and green apple.
Comment
Perfect to be making a long drink with. Pass me the ice, slice and soda. Not one for nosing and cradling, but for pouring, mixing and quaffing!

Nose
Grassy and floral. Meadowsweet, angelica, lemon balm. Light smoke.
Palate
Very sweet with a big vanilla whiff. Biscuity. Belgian waffles. Tastes young. The cask has not left a profound print, apart from the sweet vanilla. Smoky.
Finish
Sweet, and fades quickly.
Comment
Not unpleasant but one dimensional. Lacks character and complexity. The cask did not give much.
