Nose
Malty. Oatcakes, muesli. A precise new leather note. Opening on grassy aromas. Drying hay, lemon balm. Aniseed.
Palate
Light and crisp. Sweet herbal tea. Aniseed, dill. Ripe pear.
Finish
Sweet, medium long. Keeping that fresh aniseed character.
Comment
A classic Bourbon cask maturation. Refreshing and satisfying. A good springtime malt to enjoy with smoked salmon.

Nose
Quite delicate and light, with a fragrant and zesty note of fresh lime, vanilla, acacia honey and custard.  There's a spiritiness about it, but the vanilla notes compensate for any youth here.
Palate
More zesty notes of lemon meringue, a creamy vanilla alongside a very light and fragrant smoke.  Just a wisp, but it's definitely distinctive enough to coat the palate alongside the top notes of citrus.
Finish
Surprisingly drying and short, but with lingering smoke and vanilla.
Comment
One for when the sun comes out.
