    A firm, perhaps even austere whisky from first fill bourbon casks. No sherry influence here. It's virtually 60%, non-chillfiltered and natural colour, which I always prefer. I think this whisky will take some time to settle and come to its best. I opened it last evening, let it sit for a while in the glass and was expecting to nose vanilla, coconut and tropical fruits, as the producer's notes suggested but all I got was powerful alcohol. (maybe it was just me) The palate, though, with some water added, did deliver the promised tropical fruit and a very hot, peppery finish which lasted a long time. I think I'll leave this one in the cupboard for a while before trying again. It hasn't impressed me yet - but time will tell.

    Nose: Honey, lightly herbal, banana, coconut and pear. Rhubarb and custard [seriously ??] with subtle toasted malt edge. With Water: Sweet vanilla and tablet, tropical fruits, trace of Parma Violets with cocoa powder notes. Palate: Peppery and spicy with orange, apple and raspberry flavours with milk chocolate. Peppermint on the finish. With Water: Spicy with orange, ripe banana, pear, raspberry cream and milk chocolate with hint of sherbet lemon. Give this whisky time to develop in the glass and it's fantastic, 2-2.5tsp water and it opens up beautifully.. Just be patient and it may be one of the best youngish Speyside whiskies you'll ever have.. It's definitely one of my favourites.
