In the mouth, it‘s a bit thin/watery, and due to the low bottling strength, the liquid doesn’t manage to match the diversity and depth of aromas that were promised on the nose. There‘s some sweetness and some juicy acidity, followed by soft spice and restrained bitterness. It‘s all pretty indistinct, though, and all over in a heartbeat.
The short finish provides fennel and dill notes (from the wood) on a bed of juicy apple and honey (from the distillate).
A very measured and restrained single malt that is hamstrung (if not outright strangled) by the low ABV. Though refill-heavy, this could really have been something (à la Glenfarclas) if bottled at a higher strength.
