    Aroma: fresh, sea, algae thrown on the seashore, white tequila, smoke in the distance, dried grain, some sawdust, lemon and zest from it, coal dust, cellulose and a hint of needles
    Taste: spicy fresh ginger, minerality, a bit of malt sweetness, bitter grapefruit peel, fatty salted herring, peat, but not smoke
    Aftertaste: decaying ginger mixed with citrus bitterness, minerality, echoes of salted fish, slight effect of oak, medium length

    Bottom line: strange Bunna, you don't get much pleasure while drinking, I lacked sweetness in him, but there are interesting notes, I liked the experiment. In general, the entire series of Provenance rarely aged for more than 10-12 years, and almost always in refil bourbon barrels, I came across frank dips a couple of times, but this whisky is quite a finished product in my opinion. I think the idea of releasing such young releases is to make the distillery feel, without barrel dominance.
