Tasting Notes

Nose

Now what is this? It smells like oil and petrol – just like Riesling! Quite herbal and youthful with tart lime, apple and pear notes. Unusual nose.

Palate

Full and oily with sweet, lightly oxidised apple, pear and white fruit liberally coated in honey and infused with petrol. It tastes like a late harvested Alsatian Riesling. Amazingly well balanced and fresh. \n

Finish

A little short with lingering herbs, oat cakes and petrol. \n

Comment

I don’t think I’ve tasted a whisky quite like it. Has it been finished in an ex-Riesling cask half full of wine? By the way, I love Riesling!
