Legs: Thinner than a 40% and quite slow

Nose: Straight from the new bottle, undiluted – Old dessert wine, toffee and vanilla in the background. With a little water more emerges – milk chocolate, orange, dried apricot.

Palate: A really delicious whisky! Undiluted remains quite closed, warm on the tongue with sherried sweetness. With water – The same wonderful old wine from the nose leads into toffee & citrus fruits. After a week and some air there is still the sweet dessert wine arrival, leading into a peppery cinnamon spiciness. The youth of this malt now makes itself apparent.

Finish: Warming, sweet sherry, citrus fruits and surprisingly long for so young a whisky. After a week and some air, the finish is spicy, sweet and quite fiery with a touch of smoke right at the end.

Comment: This is whisky that, straight out of the bottle is trying to pass itself off as an older more experienced malt but with some time and air it’s youth starts to show through. Having said that, this is one of the loveliest young malts I have ever tasted.

I will be keeping a close eye on this distillery. This little gem has me excited to see what more time in the cask will produce.
