    I am surprised that there are no tasting notes on this bottle, probably the marks are from tastings at a whisky festival.
    Yes it is nice, but not 4k nice which is what you would have to fork out for this bottle, why would you.
    A young, fresh, but ultimately lacking in power bowmore

      At first there is a massive grapefruit note, pink grapefruit actually and it is really nice.
      Next up is a dry hay note, a little cereal, green gooseberry, warm pastry, it is quite coastal, rock pools that sort of thing.
      If there is any peat the fruit is keeping it hidden?
      I really home the grapefruit is on the palate also.
      I am almost tempted to say light and fresh, certainly fresh.
      After 15 minutes in the glass

      There is grapefruit there,no doubt about it, bitter grapefruit was my first thought but as it washes over your tongue and goes down your throat it seems to sweeten up a little.
      There is a cereal note which reminds me of a 1950 knappogue castle but not as pronounced.
      There is some green apple and yellow plum which again is bitter at first but sweetens up.
      Yes there is peat here but it is a subtle peat which I really like

      Slightly bitter grapefruit , but leaves the palate quite fresh, not as long as i was expecting (hoping)
