NOSE: clean with a proud butterscotch tart theme. The barley is still fresh and at times concentrated;

TASTE: I defy you to count how many different style of natural toffee you can find on this…; a thin layering of ulmo honey sits well with the maple syrup and persistent malt;

FINISH: a little spiced cocoa on the fading barley sugar;

BALANCE: given the right cask, shows what a lovely malt this distillery is capable of producing. Engaging and irresistible.
