Nose
Refined, lightly scented with lots of lots of birch, pine and earthy iris. Pure, with a perfect bone structure.
Palate
Sweet, lifted, gentle and pure with hints of moss and mint. Just lacks a little extrain the centre.
Finish
Clean and soft.
Comment
It is of its style, which is one in its restraint and coolness is becoming increasingly potent. For me this just needs a little energy to lift it into excellence.

Nose
Light. Grassy, lemony. A bit sharp. Herbal tea. Lemon grass. Warm vanilla custard. Muësli.
Palate
Smooth at first. Then pretty fizzy. Very refreshing. Peppermint, star anis. Herbalist shop.
Finish
Pleasantly soothing on powder ginger and lemon zest.
Comment
An enjoyable light but vibrant dram. Which will accompany a fish dish (add a splash of water in your glass). Don't expect complexity. The cask did not give much.
