    Nose: Oh mama!. this is a strong one, lots of alcohol, vanilla behind it, sweet bourbony feeling to it. kind of reminds me a bit of the tuthiltown single malt i tasted a few weeks ago, but much stronger than that one in terms of Alcohol . the wood is also very noticeable here. New make notes, in addition toffee, burnt sugar, some dates…

    Palate: Sweet, woody, spicy (cinnamon galore), tons of wood in this one. vanilla big time. i could have taken this for a bourbon if i had blindfolded tasted this one. very interesting. And so young!

    Finish: Finish on dried fruits, Oak and some bitter notes. Quite long.

    Bottom line:

    This is a strong, very virile malt that needs to be tamed with a little water, but again, it’s so young an kicking it will give a good fight.

    Very surprising to see that such a young (a few months old, mind you!) spirit ages so fast in the barrels, and displays quite a palate and a nose, it’s a wee baby, but still, acts as a big kid. Definitely worth a try, if you can get a wee bottle of this one.
