Tasting Notes

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.
