Nose: Strong malt, sweet bread like Hawaiian bread, vanilla, sweet lemons, flowers, sea salt, freshly cut grass, hay, coriander, rosemary.

Taste: Soft sweetness that turns dry, lemon zest, cream puffs, oak. Very fresh.

Finish: Dry, floral, a touch of bitter citrus.

I think of this as being a fall whisky, but not for reasons that Islay whiskies are good for this time of year. There's is obviously no smoke or peat, but there is a great sense of hay and dead grass. It's like when you rake up leaves and you stir up all those smells of dying plants. It doesn't sound great, but I think it smells just like autumn. Very enjoyable, but I would probably like it more if it were a little older.
