Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Butterly at first. Eccles cakes, apricot and almond croissants. Layers of grain, porridge oats, crushed barley and lemon zest. Banana bread and butter, and spearmint leaves.
Palate: Orchard fruits, white grape, Windfall apples and a cider note. Then freshly mown grass. Milk chocolate coated vanilla fudge, praline sweetness and a touch of black pepper.
Finish: Lingers with a yeasty, bready note with some citrus edges.
Comment: Great character from this dram.
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: A fruity explosion of peardrops, blackcurrant fruit gums, dried apricots and a spritz of lime zest at the end. Meringues with Baileys buttercream followed by hints of aloe vera.
Palate: Grassy tones at the forefront with lavender, aloe vera and toasted oregano leaves with vibrant undertones of blackcurrants, baked red apples and citrus fruits.
Finish: Starts off light and juicy with a leathery texture to finish.
Comment: A bag of skittles. Simply… taste the rainbow joy.
