Nose
Very fresh and grassy, with some fresh fruit salad and then Crunchie bars. Water brings out graphite and freshly mown grass. Still a little stony.
Palate
Fairly rigid light powdered ginger. Seems a little unformed, as if the constituent parts are still pulling together. Water helps.
Finish
Short, little hard. Young.
Comment
Another nipper. That tropical fruit will develop over time as everything settles down. Like Ballechin, this is one to watch.

Nose
Gala melon, juniper and Ouzo. A clay-like mineral quality. Linseed oil, with an intensely floral nose too. Some sherry-like toffee notes.
Palate
Unusual and difficult to place. Something herbal, possibly burnt sage or even more of that juniper. Some vanilla and fruit toffee.
Finish
Oily, like a cooking oil.
Comment
Very unusual and now knowing what it is, this one was hard to assess blind, as it feels very different to Scotch malt, just as it should do.
