very wonderful whisky, despite the young age. Colour is pale gold, nose and taste reminds some fruits like  peach, apricot,  with a final of mango and a little bit a waxy and honey note. It's not a simple or immediate whisky, it needs various careful tasting to discovery all the flavours. There is no peat or excessive sherry note, it' s just a straight sincere whisky, only in the appereance a simple one, but a very complete whisky to a more careful analysis. Very important date, the price is very good (50-60 euros), maybe one of the best products in terms of price/quality

in my opinion score  90

Tasting notes from the distillery,

Nose : The bouquet is totally disarming. Add a dash of water to tease the shy aromatics of water lily, buttercup, gorse and fern before floral notes mingle with the aromas of sweet malt and brown sugar. Then gooseberry, pear, apple and lemon are met by malted barley rising in harmony with the vanilla rich oak. A revelation of how pure and crisp a young single malt can be.

Taste : The texture is so very succulent. Lemon meringue laced with warm honey, then the tidal surge of slow-distilled spirit that floods the palate with wave after wave of delicious The texture is so very succulent – lemon meringue drizzled with warm honey, then the tidal surge of slow distilled spirit floods the palate with wave after wave of delicious soft fruits, as lush as one will ever discover in a single malt. A super sweet, butterkist flavour with just a hint of summer flowers and you realise you are in the company of something wonderful, something rare.soft fruits as one will ever discover in a single malt. You realise you are in the company of something wonderful, something rare. A super sweet butterkist flavour, with just a hint of wild summer flowers. The mid-palate introduces the oak character which gives us glazed hazelnuts.

Finish : It is very impressive for a spirit so young and a grain so old. There is an air of gentle grace and innocence that ascends from this spirit that I have never before experienced. A refined, delicate, beautiful whisky that will haunt you for a long time.
