I was nervous spending so much on my first bottling from this distillery, but oh my is it fantastic. I read tasting notes for this referencing fresh fruit tea, and that is spot on, i feel like im nosing and tasting sweet fruit tea with some fresh grass notes in the nose, and a slight oaky vanilla in the taste. Fantastic dram, in my top ten.
