Nose
Aromas of buttery oak, apricot, thyme and black pepper. With time hints of barley, heather and sweet rose petals, but the distinct first fill American oak is dominant.
Palate
Full and very oaky with the buttery American oak cloaking the apricot and barley. Slightly herbal on the middle but the oak is overly intrusive.
Finish
Long and oaky! A little crisp citrus adds some balance. Lingering rose petal notes.
Comment
Underneath all that oak the spirit feels quite young, although the youthful intensity sort of makes it work quite well.

Nose
The nose suggested a very well made mainland Scotch whisky with a bite of oak, wax candles and rubber soles. Evensong at a boys' school.
Palate
Really easy drinker this, with some lovely balanced spices, sweet summer fruits and classy old leather. Caught at the perfect age.
Finish
Smooth, sweet, there is enough going on without it needing to be a huge symphony.
Comment
This is first class whisky making. Kudos to the team behind this.
