    Notes from 3/20/16:
    • Nose
      91 91
      Great nose! Power and balance with no shortage of character. Fruity with pear and baked apples. Cinnamon. Faintly woody. Balanced nicely with maritime notes.
    • Taste

      Much woodier and saltier. Fruit takes a definite backseat to the oak and sea. Slightly creamy too.
    • Finish

      Unique and unexpected lemon meringue on the swallow. Turns to vanilla oak. I'm guessing a lot of bourbon cask influence to this one.

    Harmonious as a water colour. A full display of soft flavours. A lovely springtime whisky to enjoy with red fruit.
    • Nose
      Light,quite delicate. Cream soda. Orange drops. White currant jelly.
    • Taste
      Sweet and round.As delicate as on the nose. Berries in yogurt. A touch of powder ginger.
    • Finish
      Soft,with a spicy lingering note.
