Colour: yew tree
Nose: a very refreshing assortment of vanilla, grated lemon peel, honey glaze, pine nuts and cold pressed rapeseed oil that explains the waxy feel I’m experiencing. A hint of kaffir lime, aniseed and ginger round off a perfectly pleasant expression.
Taste: I was expecting more oomph for want of a better word at 50%, particularly with this whisky being only 6 or 7 years of age. Instead like some of the organic/green whiskies I’ve tasted recently it’s lacking that extra gear to really be of interest. Summing up this dram in the mouth would take just 1 word; creamy. Double cream with lemon peel, shortbread just out of the oven and more lashings of honey and vanilla.
A solid dram but little more.
