Official notes:
Nose: fresh and fragrant, carrying a spiced fruit quality and candied lemon zest
Palate: vibrant, still sweet and fruity with Seville oranges and old fruit boxes
Finish: very more´ish, still fresh and citrusy with lingering oak and spices (J)

My opinion: fresh, citrusy and (neat) very very peppery are dominant notes. With Water and time the pepper calms down and it gets sweet´n creamy like a vanilla soft ice.

PS: Water... lots of water! Despite its only 51.1% one of the most water-consuming whiskys I had so far, best at astonishing low 30-35% ABV. Pepper changes to dry ginger, soft orange peel replaces stronger citric notes, exotic fruits like lychee come forefront.
