    What I like about these young whiskies, is that they show a lot of the character of the distillate. What we have here is a pleasant, spirit driven young whisky with a bit of gentle peat to give it a kick, but also some nice sweet and soft elements.
    • Nose
      83 83
      The Dalvve batch 8 was matured in firs fill bourbon casks for 5 years, from a mash of peated and unpeated barley.
      This immediately manifests itself on the nose, where fresh grass and lemon grass turn up, along with notes of earthy peat, candy-like sweetness, green fruit and under ripe melon. The youth I obviously there, but it’s fresh, clean and inviting.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Rather malty, with a soft , delicate and almost shy peatnote, orchard fruit and green wood. Again obviously fairly spirit driven as the bourboncask influence is mostly noticeable underneath, with a faint vanilla like sweetness to it.
    • Finish
      78 78
      A woody note, with a drying sensation in the front of the mouth and tongue. It is also a bit harsh and sharp and it’s here that it struggles a bit I think.
