- This needs a little time to breathe to get the best out of it.
A light fruity whisky.
Very light, floral, a little butter perhaps but not very expressive.
Very fizzy and prickly but it settles down quite quickly.
Fruity lemon zest mixed in with a sweeter strawberry fruitiness and a little mango. After a while it gets creamier.
Medium length with a very pleasant sweetness.
- Very light nose on orange, Cleopatra glue, frangipane, dilution brings a mixture of spices: cinnamon and clove. Aqueous. Does not make his age: the influence of the keg is very limited. Alcohol is well integrated but malt a little too discreet. Short final. Makes you think of a Lowlander, far too absent for me.
Floral, perfume. Young. Green fruits apples, pears. Ginger, pepper. Ethanol. Mineral. Sap.
Very fragrant. French wh .... perfume? Not my favorite profile, actually. It's a bit rough, sickening limit. Persistent bitterness. New make-ish.
Average. Bitterness. Dry.
First a thin peat farm, which fades after aeration. Then come green apple, spring flowers, and especially a lot of fresh pink grapefruit but not acid.
I was expecting a mouth in the nose, it is not: yellow fruits slightly sweet, then a note of citrus acidity.
The finish is medium, with salty, bitter and tart notes (again citrus).
