Nose
A little hard with a feint sulphur note (probably pushed stills as it isn't sherry matured). Industrial with herbs, uncooked dough, coffee and some sweetish barley attempting to inject some balance.
Palate
Vague and surprisingly watery given its ABV, with hard barley and industrial notes. Sweet barley and toffee endeavour to add balance with a mineral note on the middle.
Finish
Drying, grassy and herbal with the industrial notes lingering beneath the citrus.
Comment
Not my favoured style of whisky and for that reason... I'm out!

Charles Montanaro

Nose
Young fresh citrus, young malt, fresh grapes, muscat, strong musty wine driven aroma.
Palate
Perfume, mint, wine driven with heavy notes of muscat with marzipan.
Finish
Short lived finish, yet, lively and crisp.
Comment
Impossible to get my head around this dram. Very unusual finish and ageing, intriguing to say the least. Muscat / wine finish? The sample was finished as I kept sampling more to try and further understand the dram.
