Color: Straw, oaked Chardonnay with nice slow legs.
Nose: Green hay, malting floors, fresh spearmint leaves and bitter lemon. Sliced Bartlett pears, poached apples and strawberries. Sea breeze, vanilla and sweet eucalyptus drops with slowly building smoke like coming from an extinguished campfire at the background.
Palate: Lemonade, dry wood and sweetened iced green tea. White pepper, yellow grapefruit and lime peel. Hint of nutmeg, peat and sage. Fireplace smoke, freshly milled grist, green grass and fresh tobacco leaves.
Finish: Medium long with white pepper, smoke and sweet soot.
Overall: This bottle reminds me old school Lowland single malts... Old Bladnoch or Rosebank bottlings to be more specific. It's a fresh and vibrant whisky defined by green and yellow notes. It's grassy, foresty, lightly peated, sweet and dusty. An incredibly balanced perfect day drinking whisky. Enjoying it very much right now and it's barely afternoon...
