(51,1%, Eiling Lim 2015, 100 btl.)

Nose: a bit shy at first and rather unmodern. Hints of flax and waxy crayons. Apple peel, overripe melon and boiled grains. Hay and old flowers. Wet limestone and chalk. Whiffs of linseed oil and eucalyptus as well. I would probably have guessed this was a Lowlands nose.

Mouth: still a subdued, green fruitiness, with more grassy notes and flashes of minerals. Vague peaches but they are gone quickly. Chamomile tea. Faint floral notes. Liquorice and herbal potions, including a light hint of quinine. Candied ginger.

Finish: medium long, with some beer-like notes, a strong gingery note and bitter herbs.

Not a quick charmer, but an advanced and rewarding whisky if you give it some time. Around € 150.

Score: 87/100
