Nose
Acetone and other estery notes. Opens well if quietly, whispering (© MN) about macaroons, milk chocolate, sweet oak and pear.
Palate
Lightly fruity. Pure and controlled. Expands well. Fresh and slightly floral.
Finish
Light oak.
Comment
It might lack the layering you want from a 20 year old but its vibrancy is to be praised.

Nose
Intense, a bit sharp. Fruity. Apples stewed in a vanilla syrup. Touch of lemon balm. Vanilla biscuits.
Palate
Sweet then getting fizzy and tickling on the tongue. Pineapple drop. Rumlike flavours. Ripe banana.
Finish
Quickly fading. Slightly dusty.
Comment
This whisky is so close to a Trinidad rum. So surprising. You wonder whether this grain whisky has matured in a rum cask
