Tasting Notes by Wills
This whisky is a tough one to review to. It is very subtle and fresh and for me it's hard to describe. When I am nosing this the first time of the evening I only can think of flowers. Never had such a floral nose. Letting it go and searching for more aromas I definitely get some light peat smoke. There is some caramel and candied light fruits like oranges.
On the palate I get malt, muddy bittersweat tones and nuttiness. This one is light bodied and very dry on the tongue.
The finish hits a bit spicy and salty but it is rather short.
I don't know why, but what I liked most was the first impression of a really beautiful bed of flowers. Unfortunately this fade out really fast. Maybe my nose is weird but I often noticed this fact while nosing and trying to find the first impression again. This is a light summer dram without sharp edges. Nothing remarkable but a solid one.
