Before adding any water, a syrupy hay taste can occur. After having added just one drop op water, the whisky develops cut grass hints.
The finish is warm and spicy.
Personal Comment
A rather pleasant nose announces a rather surprising whisky - for a Speyside one. Clear hints of cut grass would recall a Lowland whisky. Some spicy hints, and a great complexity crown the first impression in the palate. A long and spicy finish prolongs the happiness. Another excellent bottle due to a talented independent bottler.

The second tasting just confirmed the first one. Nothing to add..

The nose is sweet and reveals cut grass and ripe fruits (pear, peach?). In the palate, the hints of ripe fruit are rather present, on a spicy background. The finish is relatively long, pleasant, with notes of spices, honey and flowers.
79/100
Ripe fruit and cut grass make this nose a nice whole, fresh and perfumed.
In the palate, the same very pleasant fruity impression. Not really complex this whisky is highly drinkable, specially because of the contrast between the fruity smoothness and some discrete peppery notes.
A long and fresh finish.

Personal Comment
The rather spicy (pepper) nose reveals some nice contrasted notes, fresh (cut grass) and woody and announces an interesting and complex whisky. A touch of sweet citrus fruit (tangerine) as well. The palate is first rather dry, with some strange mix of walnut and citrus and it developes slowly on clearer woody notes, and remains rather pungent. The finish is first slightly acid and developes on malted and chocolate notes.
79/100
At the second tasting, the nose remained fresh and spicy, and kept it nutty notes on a malty background. In the palate, the nicely woody character dominates pleasant citrus fruits hints, mixed with fruity hints, somewhere between ripe and green apple. The finish is long, fruity and slightly acid, with clear citrus hints (orange).
79/100
Quite a delicate nose with hazelnut hints and nice spicy notes The mouth prolongs nicely the nose, and some fine woody hints are present. The finish is rather short even if it is very pleasant, still on the same notes as the mouth and nose were.

Colour: Straw
The first nose is quite aggressive, sharp, marked by alcohol. Some aeration, however, sufficient to eliminate this unpleasant feeling. Then very discreetly fruity notes appear, mineral notes. Austere and well balanced whisky. Austerity is not a defect.
The mouth is very different from the nose. First, fresh and acid, it evolves into fruity notes that are rapidly replaced by metallic hints. The whole is a complex set of good taste. Not an exuberant whisky, not a approachable one. A strange contrast between the austere tastes and it's complexity. Whisky both highly complex and lacking in relief.
The finish is long and both warm and fresh. Again the contrast is striking. Extremely interesting but difficult to approach.

Color: Gold
The nose is clearly dominated by the Marshmallow. Some fruity notes in the background, and a kind of sweet veil over everything.
In the mouth, a strong impression of sugar, on the edge of the disgust dominates. Nothing spectacular, all the flavors seem to be caught in this kind of sweet straitjacket . Too bad ... Does this indicate there's a barrel default ...? Anyway, this whisky is not with my taste, although I have no doubt he may appeal to lovers of sweets.
The finish is long and prolongs perfectly the mouth. A taste of sugar persists long enough.
