Nose
Prickly. Grassy. Freshly cut grass. Angelica, lemon balm. Vanilla wafer. Touch of mint. Refreshing.
Palate
Sweet and smooth at first. Getting fizzy. Light and refreshing. White peach. Pear Williams. The alcohol is not totally mastered. Numbing sensation.
Finish
Dry, tangy, burning.
Comment
A pleasant light aromatic profile but this whisky has not matured in very active casks.

Nose
Autumnal, piles of dry leaves, drying grass cuttings. Fruit notes develop, peach and apricot. Roasted cob nuts.
Palate
Sweet peach syrup. Very clean and fresh. Water softens the alcohol nicely and brings out peach cobbler and baked apples.
Finish
Clean and herbal.
Comment
Without water this is a little unbalanced, but with water it transforms into a gorgeous dram.
