Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Light and discreet with some grass, limeade and a macadamia nuttiness. In time there's lemon and a wine-like perfume.
Palate: Very sweet with lifted aromatics. Delicate but with a subtly rich middle palate. Soft fruits.
Finish: Sweet grassy.
Comment: Bizarrely, the nose reminded me of an Argentinian Torrontes. Where's the famed Benrinnes meatiness?
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Lots of cereal character: Shredded Wheat, hay, wet earth, and some sweet biscuits. Some fruit syrup and lemon peel.
Palate: Light and sweet, with no off-notes. Vanilla cream, peach and some cereal.
Finish: Hay.
Comment: Pleasant enough.
