Sweetness, powdered sugar and vanilla are the first notes on the nose. Then there is also spice and there is actually wood. But it all stays on the malty-sweet side, is pleasing and lacks rough edges. The malty sweetness is also a sign of youth. At the very end, a maritime funk is indicated in the aroma, but it is still too fleeting.
A whisky with over 60% vol. burns. And in particular, young whisky burns and bites. And this whisky is young. With a little water it stays on the sweet side, opening up lovely syrupy fruit flavors. Some white peach, some plum - but above all sweet elderflower syrup. Then comes wood, no bitterness, no mustiness, no maritime funk. It is most likely to come if you drink the whisky undiluted - but then all the fruity-sweet notes are missing.
The whisky is tasty and has nice aromas. But there is a lack of sustainability, everything is hinted at and then disappears again. Some wood is there, something maritime Islay can be guessed.
That's drinkable whisky, that's a nice sherry butt that doesn't drown out the whisky - but that's not enough years. The alcohol is too strong and has not yet been able to form a symbiosis with the aromas. The whisky is tasty and certainly fun - but for €110 I expect depth, maturity and character. This whisky lacks them!
