N: Fruity papaya>mango and puttyish linseed oil. That’s Irish in my book with further notes of wet flint, ivy green foliage, light sour lemon, mild lemon grass, Meridian yeast extract and charcoal. The oak appears quite raw yet varnished and only lightly charred.
T: Ideally soft/congenial with a pleasingly different tangy & malty/smokey, coppery, grassy charcoal character. Un-Scottish in other words.
F: Pleasant, save for a solvency/chlorine/metallic sour chew.
C: Different, interesting and somewhat brash & cocky.Scores a C[+]
