Dave Broom

Nose
Very sweet with lots of estery notes: lemon, apple, bubblegum, iris. American cream soda, orange smarties.
Palate
A clean, sweet, start. Barley sugar, banana, lightly floral/chestnut blossom. Water shows a touch of honey. Lovely feel.
Finish
Glides away. Great length.
Comment
Good impact for a ‘light' whisky. Highly recommended.

Arthur Motley

Nose
Fresh plums, green wine gums and green fresh pears. Grass and hay, a hot, dry meadow.
Palate
Full and sweet, with a grassy, floral flavour and some green maltiness. A pleasing oily body.
Finish
More cereal character and a bit of earthiness.
Comment
An ideal first dram of the day, and a good example of how younger malt can offer a livelier, fat texture in the mouth.
