Nose
Well that's a bit different! Provençal herbs and malt biscuits with subtle sherry spice (cinnamon and ginger). Marc-like with a touch of salt.
Palate
Tart citrus, followed by light honey, malt, Provençal herbs and heather. Treacly sherry on the middle but it's the herbal notes that take centre stage.
Finish
Long and crisp with the citrus returning, augmented by soft sherry spice and lingering rose petal.
Comment
Impressive and unlike a number of European whiskies it seems to have spent a bit of time in oak!

Nose
Lots of new oak on the nose here, there is almost a young Bourbon note to the aromas, which gives this some body, but not enough age.
Palate
The spirit really kicks through here, fighting with the oak tannins. The result is a cacophony of flavour rather than a symphony of flavours.
Finish
Medium in length, there is polished wood and vanilla.
Comment
All the notes are there, it's just a little too loud at the moment.
