My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark straw
Nose: Walnuts, apples, vanilla, a dusty cupboard, smouldering wet leaves.
Palate: Mild peat, toasted nuts, vanilla, bircher muesli, lime, ginger, pepper and a light savoury touch.
Finish: Long, dry and smoky.
Overall: A most unusual whisky that is not easy to describe, but everything fits together very well. Lots to discover in this young malt.
Rating: 87/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
