For a refill cask, this whisky has a lovely copper colour.
A light fragrant nose of earthy notes mixed with fresh dew on a summer day.
It's definitely a summery whisky with fresh herbs and fresh gras cuttings coming through, quite floral.
The finish is elegant and suprisingly long. Just when you think you have lost the flavour, it reappears again.
A great whisky that's probably preferable before, rather than after dinner.
