Nose
Intense, slightly prickly. Smoky and grassy. Bonfire with seaweeds. A whiff of creosote. A sweeter note of pear nectar. Distant hint of tar too.
Palate
Sweet and oily. Very fresh. Mint toffee. Smoke is less present than on the nose. Quite delicate and well integrated.
Finish
Short but clean and sweet. A fruity apple note.
Comment
A stunning achievement for such a young whisky. Don't look for complexity (yet) but you do get the full enjoyment of its character.

Nose
Pine needles, bow rosin and sharp green fruits. A little fence post, telegraph pole. Caramel roasted nuts. A little salty, boiled samphire. Orange sherbet and a hint of pepper.
Palate
Fruity, sweet and very clean. More gentle pine and spearmint. Shows a little youth but still balanced. A little smoke at the end.
Finish
Short and crisp.
Comment
Shows some serious promise. Pretty well balanced for a three year old.
