- It is worth a try, cause the distillery sows its own barley itself, which results in a very creamy and butter whisky.
Fresh, malty, hay, lemon grass, oak, pepper
Lemon peel, vanilla, toffee, ginger, pepper, hay
- Easy drink, no complexity.
Rather closed, with just the malted sweetness coming through.
Light, grassy and sweet with notes of green apple and lemon.
Medium length and slightly drying with the lemon notes remaining.
- A very simple, uncomplicated Single Malt!
light citrus aromas, floral, malty, slight alcohol note;
Sweetish, citrus-fresh onset, slightly sourish aromas, marked youth, on the palate malty;
a short finish with citrus fruits in the reverberation;
- It’s time to embrace said ‘classic’, received as a Christmas present in 2016.
C: An easy one ideal for home blending. Keep it open for a while and it’s not totally offensive, and begins to open into a reasonable sipper or hip flask option. Saying that, I gave this away myself.

A mild note of oak barrel and delicate vanilla.
Yes, nothing special. But the overwhelmed also no ... In the taste a little spicy, not very exhausting. Rather easy-going and soft. Very nice wood notes.
- Gift set with glasses.
- A solid-quality, but young, single malt with strong initial green notes. As it opens, the quality of the spirit becomes more evident with floral notes and a bitter-sweet taste. I found that its green notes were never over-powering, and that it was pleasantly complex for its age.
