Nose
Similar to 12, but this time there's lots of pear juice and a light floral edge. Moss once more - damp this time - as well as a whiff of jasmine. Ethereal and seems youthful.
Palate
Lime, grass, cucumber. Some fresh acidity. Needs water to soften things down a little.
Finish
The whisper is slightly louder.
Comment
Delicate but with real personality.

Nose
Fresh but very shy. Ethereal. Nail varnish. Digestive biscuits. Vanilla.
Palate
Sweet, round. The same biscuit notes then a fizzy explosion of spices. Ginger. With water, a leafy flavour with some astringency. Artichoke leaves.
Finish
Fizzy, spicy and dry.
Comment
A whisky with a whispering nose and a tangy palate! Not well balanced but not unpleasant.
