Nose
Now we have a cross between two samples, as if the sweet shop has merged business with the nail bar. Intense and a little metallic.
Palate
Like chewing on a foil wrapper. Light sweet fruits.
Finish
Sprite (the drink, not the fairy).
Comment
Yet more immature whisky on the market - why? It's not doing the distiller, or the consumer any favours.

Nose
Floral. Freesia, violet. Opening on grassy notes. Dry hay. Honey.
Palate
Smooth, sweet. Cereal flavours then drying on dusty spices.
Finish
Restrained, with an almondy note.
Comment
A light floral and grassy whisky which lacks structure and body. Too young probably.
