    Look at that beautiful colour. Au natural. Beautiful and pristine distillate. Abv works great, and I’d go further in saying any higher and the heat would have a negative effect. Very accessible and tasty stuff. No it will never win any awards, but whisky like this is not the trend anymore, unfortunately. Now it would be slammed into a wet wine cask for a few months to give it more character. Bollocks! Leave it like this please.

      Clean, precise, pure. Lime, and barley sugars aplenty. Soft honey crystals and wort. Really accessible with the ABV and it’s lovely. I swear I got a whiff of peat in there but it could just be my imagination.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Loads of barley sugars and citrus cakes. Matcha powder perhaps and a few iced green tea notes. Tastes like more, as they say. Honeyed like texture and again, abv is perfect. It allows you to pick out all the flavours.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Finish is the weakest part but hey, it’s young and naked. Citrus cakes and barley sugars turn into an almost soapy ending. Not in a bad way but a pure distillate kind of way. Soft vanilla notes and a little metallic edge.
