Nosing: Green Apple Caramel Sweet Lemon Peel
Very pronounced green apples and butterscotch. Lemon oil. Sweet and fresh

Taste: Sweet Caramel Malt
Sweet arrival, caramel. Malty with toasted cereal but not oily like grain whisky. Spiciness builds over time. Finishes almost sour.

Finish: Pepper Zitrus
The finish is peppery and the citrus from the nose comes back. There's an annoying bitterness which combined with the maltiness means that it has an aftertaste that is reminiscent of lager. Not a fan.

Comment:
This bottle starts off a little harsh, but calms down a bit after a week or so of being opened. The nose and palate are just fine, very fruity and light, but the finish is a problem for me, that bitterness is annoying and spoils for me what would otherwise be a very decent malt.

Finish: Salt Malt very easy

Comment: a pretty simple straight forward bottle. I feel like it's a glenfiddich with a touch of saltiness.

Comment: It doesn't seem to have a red line between nosing, taste and finish. Not bad, but leaves me somewhat perplex.

Nosing: Fruit Sweet Zitrus Lemon Peel Maritime Notes Floral

Taste: Nuts Alcohol Maritime Notes Salt Iodine

Finish: Oak Medicinal Smoke Maritime Notes Salt Seaweed Date

Comment: Very strong saltiness. I'd describe this whisky as saltwater with alcohol. After trying it multiple times I was able to taste out some nuts, but that's really about it. There is no sweetness to me. If you leave it in the mouth long enough you get some slight peppery-wood.
