Nose
Barley/combine harvester with some green leaf/grassiness and a youthfulness that's somewhat like tequila/thinned agave syrup. With water, there's white peach and a little Plado.
Palate
Soft, juicy pear then a tingle of sugar cut with mace.
Finish
Sweet. Medium length.
Comment
Has substance but light enough to make a fine aperitif/Highball.

Nose
Shy, light. Slightly cardboardy. Grassy. Lemon balm, angelica. Dry hay. Touch of honey.
Palate
Sweet, smooth. Almost syrupy. Herbal tea. Aniseed and mint. Refreshing. The cardboardy note is present. Pear eaude- vie. Also a touch of plum stone.
Finish
Short, gently fizzy.
Comment
Not an unpleasant dram but it has matured in a tired cask and has retained its new-make character. Disappointing for a 13 Years Old.
