Tasting notes
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: Fruit-forward with cooked russet apples and crunchy conference pears, and with a hint of boiled lemon sweets. Things get more indulgent with sticky toffee and creamy vanilla panna cotta.
Palate: Soft, creamy and delicate, with more baked orchard fruit and Galia melon, and maltiness. Then we’re indulging in a big bowl of buttered popcorn and hot buttered toast smothered in orange marmalade (bits in).
Finish: Gentle, and still beautifully creamy.
Comment: This would make an excellent breakfast whisky.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Fragrant and floral, really heady stuff, but pretty gentle at the same time. Beeswax candles. Orange blossom water and tonka bean.
Palate: The floral qualities continue with courgette flowers. The sweetness then takes control — caramel and chocolate pennies. Lemon zest and a touch of chilli powder.
Finish: Bags of pear drops, and with a last floral flourish it dries.
Comment: An easy going drop for the coming summer days. Good grain and lazy afternoons cannot be bad really.
