Nose
Light and fresh. Lemon sherbet and giant strawberry sweets, freshly laundered sheets, violets, oak shavings, vanilla butter-scotch and canned air. Yes, seriously.
Palate
Plenty of spice. It's peppery and drying, with toffee, lemon pith, lime peel, desiccated coconut and those strawberry sweets with sawdust.
Finish
A prickly heat alongside the toffee and a salty, grassy note.
Comment
Simple, light and drying. Sip on a hot summer's day when you fancy a whisky, but not the heft of most drams.

Nose
A gentle smoke, but then huge sweetness builds. Tablet and brown sugar. There's a mineralitly too, warm wet stones, fresh fish and just lit charcoal.
Palate
Strawberry fondant, lemon curd buns and some serious citrus. Then white pepper spice and caramel. Chilli, lime and hot chocolate drank by the sea.
Finish
Another spicy, prickly finish and fairly short with a hint of salted meat.
Comment
A great pre-dinner whisky, that peat is not going to dominate anything. Nice balance too.
