Sorry, this item is no longer available

Tasted: Mar 2016
Nose: What on earth is going on here? It smells oily and petrolly just like Riesling?! Quite herbal and youthful with tart lime, apple and pear notes. Now. That's an unusual nose!

Palate: Full and oily with sweet, lightly oxidised apple, pear and white fruit liberally coated in honey and infused with petrol. It tastes like a late harvested Alsatian Riesling. Amazingly well balanced and fresh.

Finish: A little short with lingering herbs, oat cakes and petrol.

Conclusion: I don't think I've tasted a whisky quite like it. Has been finished in an ex-Riesling cask that was still half full of wine? By the way, I love Riesling!
