This is one of the most controversal whiskies I've tried so far. It has some interesting and powerfull flavours (due to high ABV 48%) and quite bad behaved young spirit at the same time.

Nose: initially rubber, pastry, spice; over time toffee, sultanas, some citrus, butter, ripe apple, heather. Quite complex nose, developing different flsvours over the time.

Palate: spicy, vanilla, sweet, apple, raisins; over some time: grass and pine and some bitterness.

Finish: dried fruits, apple, apricot, bit of peat, vanilla, cherry.

As said, this is very interesting and vibrant whisky. Fluctuating, transforming, rebelous, young and fresh. But quite alcoholic and unbehaved. Someone will find this a benefit, but for my taste it's a bit too wild) I wish it was longer matured. Gotta try 12yo version.
