Dram Review: Waterford Bannow Island Edition 1.1

[50.0%・3 Years Old・Distilled in 2016・Bottled in 2020・Official Bottling ・Limited Release of 8,616 Bottles]

Nose:

Umm, surprisingly muted, new make, hint of cardboard, plastic as well, some green mangos, certainly some citrus to it.

Palate & Finish:

Alcohol new make, oily and somewhat sugary, wee brushes of fruitiness and grassiness from the spirit.

Some more fresh fruits in the finish, green kiwi fruits.

Thoughts:

How does one evaluate a very, and I mean very young whisky intelligently? I suppose one could go into their practicing of full transparency? But we’re talking about practice..
