Nose: Fresh, delicate, meadow-land flowers, gentle, wheat, a hint of wood.
Flavour: Well balanced, stimulating, a hint of citrus in the background, subtle, salty, some sweetness, spices, some wood, a little red fruit, syrup like, faintly moldy.
Body: Oily, pleasantly sharp, a little dry, it's finish isn't too exciting but keeps hanging around for a long time.
Comments: The sharpness acts like a double edged sword. It makes it quite original, but on the other hand slightly pushes it's subtlety into a corner. The final result still is a very pleasant delicate whisky.
