    This is a lovely dram. Really solid core character of the distillery (malty citrus, buttery palate, coastal saltiness) and the wine cask has imparted a notable but delicate influence on the whisky.
    • Nose
      Menthol, sandalwood, crystal ginger, tequila with salted limes. Dusty icing sugar and sherbet. With water, still lots of salty citrus notes, but opening up to cake batter, red grapes, sour cherries and plum flesh.
    • Taste
      Very silky and buttery, even with a fair whack of water added.

      Cranberries and hot cinnamon. Big, raw, chilli pepper burn. Yowzer. Needs water on the palate for sure.

      At 40-50% ABV we get a lot more character. More salty citrus, but served in an egg custard tart. Nutmeg, raspberries, sour guava, and bitter green apple skin with developing white pepper.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. Becomes malty, oaky, and dry, with baking spice and vanilla double cream.
