      Nose is great. Almost like a sweet ,fresh, fruity and grassy Speysider.

      Here coastal flavors arrive. Little salt and pepper; spicy.
    • Finish

      Medium long, where first the spicy flavors continue and in the end some bitterness.

    Fascinating the variety in smell, taste and finish
    A whisky that always fits

      Honey, sweet and fruity but also vanilla you notice well
    • Finish
      long floral and fruity exciting variety.
      or just gorgeous.

    THIS IS GOOD STUFF!!! Is this then the big difference between the native Bere barley and the modern (way to engineered) Barleys like optic, golden promise and so on? I know one thing for sure. This will be a permanent part in my pantry.
    • Nose
      Oh man this is good! A nice, light delicate fresh nose, which is oily at the same time. There's a lot of grassy, malty and minty/eucalyptus notes inhere. Barley and fresh light fruits. really interesting and something different. Despite of it's light and fresh character, i'm actually impressed by the body it comes on.
    • Taste
      It continues to be fresh, light and delicate. Again tons of grassy notes accompanied with some vanilla and light spices. it's quite full bodied.
    • Finish
      a little sharp at first. grains/cereals are there with some honey. And it leaves you with a fresh mouthfeel

    I think "laddie" is right when they say barley type and terroir matters. This is amazing ballance and smoothness for a 6YO.

    This is nectar.

    If I were a bee, this is where I would go for a daily buzz ;-)
    • Nose
      Mouthwatering juicy. Lemonade, honey, zesty. Very gentle, where's the alc???

      Cereal mix soaked in freshly sliced ripe pear.
    • Taste
      Again lemonade and honey. Feels surprisingly thick and oily for this lightness.

      Pear turns more towards peach on the palette.

      Sweet barley bread.

      Alc is completely unnoticable on the initial hit but builds gradualy from midway to the end.
    • Finish
      Sweet lingering cereal note with soft spice and a twist of mint. Decent length.
