Nose: interesting botanical notes here. Herbs, dried flower petals. Tangy notes of dried fruit (dates, raisins). A bit of toasted oak. Subtle but pleasant.

Taste: bittersweet, dryish, becoming quite tangy at the back of the tongue. It has a character quite different from most of the other unpeated malts I've tasted. Perhaps just a bit too much bitterness mid-palate.

Finish: a tad sour.

Balance: good whisky but there is something sharp about it. Maybe just an artefact of triple distillation? In any case it goes down well and has good body (feels well-matured). Good value, but not something I would buy again.

Is the bottle freshly opened? I don't get a sharp flavor from this one. I dislike "sharpness" so I'm sensitive to it.
