     Reminds me of some young Glen Moray I tried a while ago. Very fruity on the nose with green fruits like apple and pear. Cider / Schnapps notes. A little vanilla and spices.

     The taste is very sweet but also quite alcoholic. I gave it some water and it improved it a little bit I think. 

     It is not as good as the Trojan, but still a decent whisky. I think it should be left in the glass for a while, so that the alcoholic notes will decrease. 

     You will like this whisky, if you like a vibrant and green fruity nose and taste in your whiskies.

    Nose: a less sherried style compared to The Trojan. Quite a bit of varnish and glue at first, which I like. When this fades, a nice fruitiness appears. Orchard fruits, lime, maybe a hint of maracuya. Some vanilla cream and biscuits, maybe rice milk, after a while also nice hints of marshmallows. Whiffs of mint and cinnmon. Sandalwood. Quite some leathery notes too. A little peculiar but I really like it. Mouth: bright and fruity, now in a more exotic way. Lime, banana sweets, apricot candy and tangerines. Kiwi. A firm backbone of sappy oak, in an aromatic way, with some waxy touches. It has something of a grain whisky (vanilla, leather, oak) and something or Irish whisky (tropical fruits). Takes water well, it’s just packed with flavours. Finish: medium long, with fresh fruits and a fair dose of ‘green’ exotic oak and oranges.

    Totally different from their first cask, but a very nice whisky again. It reminded me of some Teeling casks, as well as some of the excellent Glen Keith 1992s. Hard to beat if you’re looking for fruitiness and bourbonny oak, and nicely ambiguous again. Around € 90 plus duties. Available from their website, from midday (London time) this Thursday.

    Score: 89/100

    Totally agree. I'm just a little bit more generous and give it a score of 90/100. Reminds me a little bit the best Aberlour A'Bunadh, just a little less brutal and maybe finest in taste.
