  1. DarrenHJA scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Batch 3 and 4 are so much better.

    This is no doubt enjoyable but has no complexity to offer.

    This dram is drinkable but nothing to get excited about. The nose promises something quite different but the taste is more expected and very average. I would like to see this distillery in some very good casks as I feel it has the potential to be something different. Different good or different bad I can't tell! 82.
    • Nose
      Initially a strong herby note prickles my nose, resinous like tree sap. Quite odd and different. Neither pleasant nor unpleasant, just odd. It receded slowly revealing a tough of menthol. Hints of wood varnish with some freshly sawn green wood. With water the resin softens to give some unripe green fruit possibly apples or gooseberries.
    • Taste
      The taste is surprisingly malty and earthy with quite a tangy tongue tying taste. Fruity with apples and pears. Touches of white pepper. The taste is better than the nose would suggest as they are not at all in synch! That said this is an average dram at best. With water I get a taste of green wood as if freshly cut from a tree.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long with white pepper and a menthol note

    For lovers of discoveries and non-banal flavors.
    • Nose
      At first glance evokes the green Chartreuse liquor: grassy, ​​mentholated, resinous notes; but also beautiful presence of cereal, vanilla, fruity and floral notes.
    • Taste
      Mouth difficult to describe because of its diversity and complexity: as a piece of four-quarter cake with orchard fruits (pears, peaches) and citrus fruits (lemons), slightly caramelized and vanilla, copiously sprinkled with an emulsion of one tea both vegetable and floral. Really original, atypical and fascinating.
    • Finish
      Medium to long enough, clean and always complex, remarkable for its scented, balsamic and lemony freshness. Can we blame him for lightly drying ?.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose: Fizzy apple belts, lemon curd and buttered toast.Palate: Nice biscuits and green apple slices with oak influence developing.Finish: Long with a little of everything that went before in support of delightful toasted oakiness.
