    Astringent alcohol and dry oak, then a whole lot of nothing. Water breaks this apart however. Its rather green, with freshly cut twigs and ground bark. It proceeds with oranges and dried yellow stone fruit. Not bad!
    • Nose
      Pretty aggressive at this strength. Well-balanced tannins and caramel cake, but overall rather closed-off. Water helps here as well. When diluting it down to 43-45% ABV it finally shows its character: thoroughly balanced, caramel sweetness, candied peaches, and faint dried banana. A young malt, sure, but quite pleasant.
    • Taste
      Medium-short. A touch of mint chocolate and butter-scotch biscuit.
    • Finish
      I liked the Odyssey-Barley release a tad better. It’s worth a try though. Single Malt from England is somehow still rather unlikely for me *wink*.
