Tasting Notes

Colour: very light gold / dark straw

Nose: dry ash, behind it coconut, vanilla, fresh, slightly pungent, very little yellow fruit, in addition honey and nut, after longer standing also light cask tones: damp sawdust

Taste: very dry, but in addition nice malty-fruity sweetness, some yellow fruits – rather fruit candies, rather moussing and astringent, only slightly oily, on the whole rather fresh looking, somewhat metallic and slightly bitter

Finish: medium length, peaty-dry, only slightly bitter

Conclusion: hardly any new make character
