Nose
Interesting, youthful and very malty. Like a Dutch malt-wine with sweet barley, honey and a winey, Grappa-like note. A touch of buttery oak along with what feels like a little rye spice.
Palate
Crisper and edgy with more earthy rye-like notes and hints of sweet barley and youthful Grappa-like spirit. Subtle, dusty spice with building whisky notes and a suggestion of oak.
Finish
Good length, if a little dry. Subtle and smoky with malt biscuits and dark rye-like notes.
Comment
Curious and entertaining. I would have liked to have seen a little more balancing oak character on the palate.

Nose
Lots of smooth spirit on the nose, the cask hasn't had too much time to work on this one. Toasted marshmallows, flumps, and, with time, some runny honey.
Palate
A distinct creamy note to this and just the slightest hint of oak, it carries more flavour than that nose might suggest. Surely a stage on the journey to maturity?
Finish
Sherbet, old fashioned lemonade and lychee.
Comment
This tastes like it could be a great dram, but not for another few years yet.
