Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Gentle and mild with notes of resin, grass and sweet porridge with honey. Sweet, fresh, white fruits are hiding behind a meaty and spicy smokiness. Picnic in a pine forest with Parma ham sandwiches marinated with mint, thyme, pepper and cumin, and a big portion of raita served as a side.
  • Palate

    The fresh first-fill cask comes alive and is predominant on the palate. The spiciness is still there with a much bitter kick this time, while the whisky becomes creamier. Predominant is still the herbaceous smoke walking side by side a fresh lemon and lime zestiness.
  • Finish

    Spicy and smoky medium finish. Smoked lemon peel with honey and vanilla biscuits with the classic mild meatiness, characteristic of this style of whisky.
