Exceptionally fragrant. Flowery, young fruit. So fresh! I get pears, apricots, maybe grapes or berries of some kind. Honeycomb. Some wood too. Gets a bit prickly on the nose now.
Still very fresh. A bitter sweet, really big malt taste. Young fruits again, but a bit damp on the palate now. Like hay, cut grass or something. Some wood at the end.
A so-so finish. Short and a malt and wood mix is left at the end.
What a shame about the finish. It gets watery and flat. The nose and taste still get a good score out of this though, and the value of this is very good.
