Nose

Starts on discreet phenols associated at first with cooked veggies (boiled cabbage?), and then with crystalized fruits (candied angelica and tangerine). Becomes really interesting now with subtle notes of bergamot and chamomile. And perhaps just a dash of peach juice and white chocolate.

Taste

Smooth and silky. A bit too smooth, actually. Lacks a bit of punch (43%?), but not of flavours. Diluted honey. Acacia flower beignets. Lemon drops. And a light haze of cold smoke in the background.

Finish

Collapses before long. Is an excessive dilution to be blamed?

Comments

A delicate malt that reminds me of some production from the Orcades or Northern Territories for its honeyed and delicately smoky character. Such a shame that the mouth turns out to be a bit weak...

Nose

Hmm, strange nose, light, malty, cereal grains, not very inviting.

Taste

Nutty, a little spicy, lots of bitterness.

Finish

Short and spicy.

Comments

Not my cup of tea. Very unbalanced whisky. Goes to nowhere.
