Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Freshly cut grass, newly baked croissants, marzipan and olive oil give this whisky a fresh nose, complimenting the time of year it has been released.
Palate: Battenburg cake, sweetened vanilla custard, chamomile tea and lavender shortbread give a very summery appeal to this light dram. Backed with a hint of oak, this is more Glastonbury than The Proms.
Finish: Grapefruit and vanilla, result in a lemon meringue pie finish.
Comment: The whiff of a Parisian boulangerie and the sweet treats hidden inside.
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Lovely aromas of succulent, mature, tropical fruit and sawdusty oak. Beautifully deep with a touch of manuka honey, white fruit, melon, barley and a lithe citrus note.
Palate: Soft and quite heavy on the vanilla. A little watery but it has some pleasant barley and honeyed moments. Still quite tropical with apricot, banana, citrus and a light spiciness.
Finish: Reasonable length with the fruit offsetting the slightly bittering oak.
Comment: If only the palate had a little more intensity, then it would have scored a lot higher.
