Nose
Fragrant with cereal husks, apricot, coconut and dried fruit. Becomes herbal with a touch of wood smoke. Water emphasises the cereal and oils.
Palate
Fuller than the nose with fleshy apricot, herbs, coconut and milk chocolate. Very grainy (showing its youth) but intense. Water emphasises the natural oils but flattens too.
Finish
Intense and sharp with oak softening the edges. Neat, it is still austere, though diluted, it's a little bitter.
Comment
A lovely, fresh, young grain. Avoid water – the alcohol gives it intensity.

Nose
This takes time to grow out of the glass, and when it does it reveals white flowers, huge vanilla and whipped cream notes and just a hint of toasted oak.
Palate
A little thin, even at 49% ABV this could have done with a bit more oomph. But what is there is a good example of grain whisky, with more toasted oak and marshmallow.
Finish
Sweet green tea and lavender make this a refreshing dram.
Comment
Not the greatest grain ever, but certainly not the worst. Middling to good.
