    Several things make me qurious about this distillery and this whisky which I have to be honest never heard about.
    After what I found out they make all kind of spirits, many quite unique when it comes to raw materials and taste.
    One thing in particular about the whisky; it is 6 times distilled. There can't be much barley flavour left, and I can hardly see the need to emphasis the use of "velvety water" and purpose grown barley. But it should vouch for quality.
    Some may also find it an approval of quality, although I rather ask how much did it cost to have Jim Murray rate it 95,5.

      First impression is a pure but spiked apple juice.
      Light wood notes mingles, twisting it more into apple skin.
      Crisp, bright, but appears very simple.
      Apples and slightly wineous wood, that's it.
      OK, giving it some time there is a whole banana jumping from the glass. Have to be a rogue one, because once it's there, it totally dominates.

      On the pallate the Amarone comes through.
      Sweet on red berry jam.
      Arrival is OK, but it turns "weird" quickly. Almost artificial.
      Some kind of disinfectant or detergent.
    • Finish
      70 70
      Sweet, brandy with brown sugar.
      Very short before it goes slightly woody and then very bland, like the aftertaste of pure unflavoured alcohol.
