Nosing: PineappleKiwiVanillaSweet
Full intensity. Light and sweet. Syrupy. Fresh Pineapple. Kiwi fruit. Vanilla. Has a slight brick dust smell as well

Taste: ZitrusSweetOakSpicesPepper
Sweet intense arrival. Some fresh fruit initially (mixed sweet citrus), but immediately oak and spice / pepper come forward.

Finish: OakSpicesPepper
Medium length. At the start of the finish there's a resurgence of fruit flavours which gives way to lingering oak and pepperiness.

Comment:
For a 10 year old this is a very well balanced package. The nose is very good and mostly spirit driven. On the palate there's a lot more cask influence which masks the distillery character a bit. The finish is fairly simple, but good enough in length to round it out. Again for a 10 year old official bottling this is a good showing.

Nosing: fresh, hay, herbs, something kind of bittery

Taste: delicate, needs water for me. After adding water you do not feel too much in taste. Hay, grass, some delicate herbs, and some alcoholic bitterness

Finish: it has something I like in it. Don't know actually what, but reminds me smth which I do appreciqte. Howevere is not strong at all, is very light and fade in a medium speed.

Comment: They say on the label: rather delicate. And they are right. It might be nice for someone who don't like too oaky whiskies, or who want to start with whiskies. I will not repeat this dram probably, even for it's quite interesting aftertaste. Might like to try smth older from this destilery.
