      Fresh light scent. Grainy, wheat. Fresh oak. Peppercorn.

      Soft, maybe too watered down. Does not happen so much in terms of taste but it is not bad.

      Pretty short. Sweet citrus.

  5. SAND scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    NOSE: Initially fruity notes of sea buckthorn. After a few minutes in the glass, intense summer honey and heather honey also appear. Lots of honey. Underneath are more common ex-bourbon cask notes of dried yellow fruits, mild vanilla, dried coconut shavings and ... well, bourbon. Fruity, honeyed and pretty intense on the nose. I like it. (86-87p)
    TASTE: The arrival is bitter-sweet-fruity, on sea buckthorn and quince, with touches of mango. On the mid palate the wood spice shows up with white pepper and ginger, together with more sweet honey. (83-84p)
    EXIT: The exit is a bit uneven and short; black pepper / wood tannins, some honey and it's all a bit disjointed. (81-83p)
    OVERALL: A very nice debut from Aurora Distillery. Young but tasting and nosing older than its three years. TOTAL SCORE 84 points.

    Pretty,pretty nice young whisky. Nose is clear a young dram, finish medium, on the palate it feel much older, then it is. Like the sweetness and hope for a CS release in the future.
