Color: Soft amber.

Nose: At first green apples, vanilla and oak. Adding water releases fruity flavours: grapes, pineapple and a small touch of banana. It 's all combining very well with a hint of cinnamon.

Taste: I'm getting (again) green apple with some spices, ginger and oak. Water softens the apple and adds some unripe bananas and grapes. It even gets a little 'nutty'.

Finish: The spices warm your mouth for quite a while. There's some caramelized brown sugar that lingers in the back.

Conclusion: A young whisky that shows already some character with his fruity flavours. This 10 year old is getting rare.

My original tasting notes (in Dutch) can be found on my tumblr blog A Tasty Dram: tastydram.tumblr.com/post/50929566952/…
