    N- No, didn't nose as young, an eyebrows raiser from the first sniff, plenty of fruits with tasty candy nuances, abundant of floral, lime, honey wax and pickled nutmeg, can't go wrong when you have all the above. Finely zest, honey stars, cut pineapple and evolving well to sweet oak smokes. Perhaps some hard notes lingers with raw oak but great "young thing" from a young distillery up on the cold and remote Northern Hemisphere at the outskirt of whisky producing world. (89/22)

    P- Always edgy but well structure for full mouthfeel, plummy, cinnamon spices, fruity sweet with touch of sweet moist oak. (87/21)

    F- Long, citrus-y with trace of sourness, echoing fruits, candy and floral. Fine layer of sweet spirit lasted for a long time on palate. (89/22)

    B/B- 87/21

    Promising? Sure. But right now this is an average whisky priced at a premium.
    • Nose
      Creamy and aromatic with plenty of exotic fruits. Banana, peaches and nectarines. Lots of vanilla and a bit of caramel too.
    • Taste
      The youth presents itself more here. A tad spicy with ginger. But mostly vanilla, wood shavings, some banana and a touch of honey.
    • Finish
      Oak, ginger and vanilla.
