    This has been on my radar for some time now. Finally I got a 6cl sample some weeks ago. A 6 year old Single grain at 46% abv. Can this be good? Normally I drink my grains at 20+ years and 50+%.

      Nose is nice. Typical grain. Some glue, vanilla and lots of sweetness. Very nice.
    • Taste
      86 86
      For me this goes somewhat in the direction of bourbon whisk(e)y. Strange. Have not experienced this before.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium length. Very dry and bourbon taste (for me) remains till the end.

      Not bad, certainly not for this price. But I prefer the older grains with higher abv.

    Re-review

    Nose:

    There is the obvious glue smell, but that fades away. Then there is hay, sawdust and a hint of stewed apples. The smell reminds me of corn and other grain silo's. There is a hint of vanilla in the background.

    Taste:

    Sweet. Little sour. Quit fruity. There is a recognizable grain part in the taste. There is oak, vanilla and honey. Body:

    Full and creamy

    Finish:

    Medium-long length. There is the vanilla burst. together with creamy caramel. It lasts surprisingly long for such a young whisky.

    Price:

    Realy well priced, it must be the last bottles which are for sale now.

    Presentation:

    Sober and decent.

    Nice! The 100% Rye of the same house will seduce more easily those who appreciate rather a passion and a facet more dirty.
    • Nose
      gourmand, pastry chef, vanilla. Clean. lemony. An elegant woody touch.
    • Taste
      the mouth follows the nose without much surprise; it's well done, of medium length. Without asperities, it is the ideal dram for a start of the taste buds. It will seduce by its balance and its delicacy. Coconut, vanilla, malt and a touch of spice in shambles.
      Wooded.
    • Finish
      A little short, but nice; a smooth fade-out

    I taste SG's after 5 minutes and then let them rest for an hour or so.
    • Nose
      After 5 min: Glue in the background, a little caramel, strong nutty smell and heavy citrus.

      After 1 hour: Glue still at the background, nose stays the same but far in the back a twist of anise is developing.
    • Taste
      After 5 min: Nuts and citrus, very few glue. Very creamy, but it has a sharpness that reveals either young age or high ABV. In this case probably the age.

      After 1 hour: the nuts stay, a heavy sweetness of the citrus is coming to the front, the anise is tastable
    • Finish
      After 5 min: Medium short

      After 1 hour: Medium
