There is a lot less oak influence on the nose compared with the Sheestown 1.2 and thus more fresh barley with hints of earth, minerals, green fruit and citrus. That’s not to say there isn’t any oak, hints of vanilla and tight wood spice appear but it’s not overwhelming the nose. With time hints of perfumed flowers, smoke and a distant wininess.

The palate is lightly oily and displays more off the still notes than the Sheestown 1.2, but then it is roughly 600 days younger. like the nose, the barley, earth and terroir notes shine through along with a touch of citrus and green fruit. Again subtle oak adds a touch of vanilla, wood smoke/ spice but the barley, citrus and minerals combine to make the finish pretty austere, but then the oak returns along with some apricot and tangerine. That has a lovely progression and a stunning finish.
