Nose: very fresh, with green apples, bananas, yellow plums and maybe a hint of pineapple. Also a mashy beer-like note in the background (making it seem much younger), hay and a little wet chalk. Mouth: bright fruits, mainly apples and plums. The grainy beer note is still there, and there’s a growing zesty bitterness. Lemon, grapefruit, grassy notes. Just a little vanilla to round it off. Finish: still quite zesty and grassy, very citrusy with a good dose of white pepper.
A fine, above all very natural whisky. The youngish notes and zesty grassiness on the palate make it less attractive than the others though.
