Nose: Pear juice galore and little touches of fresh mint, then more fresh herbs and a slight flintiness. Also a faint earthiness (roots, liquorice wood). Riesling possibly.
Palate: Very interesting, almost more a strong dry white wine. Indeed, it’s quite grapy, with touches of grapefruit marmalade, liquorice, lemon and just hints of bubblegum and fruit jelly. Extremely pleasant despite its very young profile.
Finish: Medium long, very clean and citrusy. Perfect aftertaste of pink grapefruit.
Overall: Superb youthful malt whisky, extremely drinkable. Takes fresh water (or maybe even ice) like a champ. Great value if you like fresh, clean and very zesty profiles.
