A fresh, clean, woody and simple whisky with aromas of cedar wood, beechwood, wood sap, malt, cereals, acacia honey, grape skins, grape seeds, hint of vanilla, green apple, floral tones, sawdust, hay, banana peal, earthy tones, hint of solvents, hint of spices (cinnamon and nutmeg) and macadamia nuts.
A dry, wood centered and clean whisky with aroma’s of cedar wood, oak sap, beechwood, honey, macarons, lemon zest, earthy tones (musty cellar), grape seeds, slightly bitter tannins, barley sugar, cereals, hint of clove, grapes, hint of cinnamon, pepper, vanilla and fresh oak.
a medium short and slightly drying finish with aromas of oak, wood sap, soft honey, vanilla, white wine, hint of star anise, pepper and slightly bitter tannins.
Yes it’s young and a bit one dimensional, but it’s got potential. Already it’s quite round and soft-spoken. It needs some more time in the barrel thats for sure (the fresh wood flavours are a but overpowering). I would love to taste this again as a 12 or 18 year old expression.
