Nose:  Very fresh:  Lemon sherbet with some  malty undertone mixed with lemon gummy bears. wet grass, and a touch of spice.

Palate: Lemon merengue with a cocoa powder topping (I know this sounds bizarre, but it’s really nice). Ginger and spices, on top of Some vanilla and wood.

Finish: Bitter sweet, Medium length with Chocolate and distant malty notes.

All in all a very good cask, with an interesting profile, should appeal to those who liked lighter whiskies with a zesty edge. Well made.
