Nose
Straw, grass, lemongrass.
Palate
Light, oily. Dry. Bamboo-like woodiness. Some vanilla smoothness after a few minutes in the glass. Aromatic. Exotic.
Finish
Grassy again. Hot. Chillies.
Comment
Rather aggressive for a malt that is usually delicate and sweet, but still very distinctive. Will stand softening with a good splash of water.

Nose
Delicate and summery but with guts. Aromatic nose: lemon, icing sugar, almond slice, vanilla, red fruit and with water basil leaf/anise.
Palate
Light to medium bodied. Floral with a sweetly attractive start but good texture mid-palate.
Finish
Strawberries then dry and malty.
Comment
Delicate yet complex.
