This is young and malty but, I guess due to the low abv, not even that sharp on the nose. I get sweet notes of apple pie, lemon and dried spices like ginger and herbal tea. Also there is fresh oak. The nose is not bad at all, not very complex either but it’s only 5 years old.
Tastewise it is sweet, watery and slightly oily. It’s sweet and fresh, mild herbal influences as well als sweet fruits like some apple but mainly pear. Also there is a more bitter/sour note to it that I refer to as lemon. Despite of it’s young age and low abv this has a surprisingly good body! It’s friendly and accessible all the way.
Medium length. In the finish it reminds me of those yellow ‘Napoleon’ candy balls. Sweet and bittersour. Again quite some lemon and pear as well. Also a hint of dry oak that pulls it a wee bit tart at the very end.
This dram is surprisingly pleasant all the way. I wouldn’t have expected such a decent body out of a 5yo whisky.
