    This was a very pleasant surprise. I think had it been at 46% this would have made much bigger impact. Very promising whisky.
    I hear they use smaller casks for maturation, so that could explain the intensity of flavours after just 5 years of ageing.

    • Nose
      Starts sweet and fruity. Then a bourbon-like profile dominates the nose for some time - lots of vanilla and hot spices.
      With water the bourbon falls back and the whisky gets into a nice balance. Very enjoyable nose after the hot dominance of the oak was toned down. Good development in the glass (even once empty) with nuts and milk chocolate.
    • Taste
      Feels a bit week on the palate despite the prickly arrival from the young spirit. Surprisingly, positively so, the palate is not as sweet as the nose suggested. Very nice vanilla overtones.
      With water gets a bit flat but at the same time excellent fudge and nutty flavours develop.
    • Finish
      The finish is on the short side with not that much to offer. Some wood towards the end.
