Tasting Notes

"The nose is quite surprising for such a young whisky. Some of the notes found are banana, custard cream, sweet spices, nutmeg, brown sugar and rye toasted bread. Of course, the youthfulness shows more on the palate showing a rather spirited-side, but it also offers pleasant notes of herbal honey, oak spices, sultanas, plums and vanilla. The finish is rather short with more fruity hints."
