Tasting Notes

"The nose is quite surprising, with soft peat, malty notes and a winey profile coming from its maturation, showing aromas of summer berries. Although you can say it is a young whisky, this expression is more easy-drinking than the other 3-year-old release from PUNI (Nova). Slightly smoky, mineral & earthy with licorice, pepper and roasted walnuts and dark berries. "
