Nose
Soft summer fruits; raspberry and cranberry. Initially,a little like an old style, slightly oxidised Provence rose though this quickly flies off,leaving grass and the picture of a rhubarb tart.
Palate
Surprisingly dry start given the juicy fruits. Malty and quite grippy then quaking fruit jelly. Fat and sweet.
Finish
Wine gums.
Comment
More of a fruit squash than a whisky, but use it as a delicious,ready-mixed summer drink.

Nose
Immediate wine finish influence which the bright orange colour confirms. Floral and fruity. Green oak. Milk chocolate. Seems young.
Palate
Sweet and smooth but with a grippy feel in the back.Cadbury raisin fruit bar.
Finish
Shortwith a bitter edge
Comment
A young whisky revamped by a wine finish. Balance is not here. Water brings out spices. But the malty profile is overwhelmed. I am not convinced.
