Tasted: June 2013
A young and slightly raw nose. Lightly oiled, quite pungent and slightly soapy to begin with before the gentle, sweet hickory smoke arrives along with a slight meatiness. Very whisky like as there is less oak influence, but it adds some subtle vanillins, which given some time to begin to assert themselves. With time the nose takes on a light starchy quality and a touch of pepper emerges.

Soft and wheaty on the palate with some light, sweet, hickory smoke. Again slightly meaty and youthful in character with an oily pungency. A little on the raw side but the wheatiness is very mouth-filling and a little marzipan oak adds weight. Good length with the light smoke lingering.
