    a young, complex and versatile. But a lovely youngster.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Despite this being a near 59% ABV whisky, all remains civil when nosing. Creamy, grainy, with vanilla and vanilla oil and white sugar. There is definitely something savoury there as well, as well as a grassy-floral-lemongrass touch. Thyme, heather an honey. Add some water and the fragrant & floral notes open up alongside a white fruit sweetness (melons), with honey, vanilla and lemon sherbet.
    • Taste
      86 86
      On first sip, immediately the ABV roars: hot, spicy an peppery indeed, allowing for little more than a sweet cereal note and something vaguely grassy-floral. Adding water is – I feel – mandatory. Now there‘s room for a floral-heather note to show up, which turn spicy and herbaceous. Even after a decent amount of water, the texture and mouthfeel remain medium full, oily and syrupy. The sweetness from the vanilla and honey notes are still there, but are pushed back a bit and just as they emerged, they rapidly evolve mid palate into a savoury note with hints of mushrooms.
    • Finish
      84 84
      That umami note lingers on in a medium long finish, accompanied by a warming, dry and sweet spiciness.

    N: Resinous bourbon-ey icing sugar, so a rather different prospect to the previous CYWL offering, though there are side-by-side resemblances.
    T: Dryish floury bourbon=grain-like sweetness, the distillery swamped.  
    F: ,…. little.
    C: Simple, pleasant enough, but I’m still pining after the CYWL dram.
