Nose
Estery – pineapple chunks, apricot, pear and melon with hints of earth / dunnage, toffee, crème caramel and with time wheat / bran flakes.
Palate
Not as fruity as the nose, more of the oily, toasted toffee. Good depth and density of apricot, banana and unsweetened pineapple. Gently spicy and malty on the middle, herbal rye notes and wheat flakes.
Finish
It shows its youth on the finish with a slightly astringent spirit note. The toffee sweetness balances.
Comment
Quite unique and unlike any other wheat whisky I've tasted. Almost Irish in style and character.

Nose
Light and joyful, a little too much solvent for my taste. Citrusy and zesty with a light saw dust nose.
Palate
A little disappointing. Honey and vanilla, very little aging and a touch bitter. A hint of orange and toffee.
Finish
Abrasive, very little there.
Comment
Unsure where it sits in the category. A lack of ageing, and I struggle to identify its identity and character.
