Tasting notes
Taster   Annabel Meikle
Nose: Chocolate orange and chocolate coated coffee beans. The orange becomes more blossom like with water. Damp garden on a summer evening.
Palate: Zesty citrus oil lively on the palate at first. It becomes more rounded and generous like fruit peel with time.
Finish: A rich sweetness balanced by the pithy burst on the middle of your tongue.
Comment: A fine example of a dram that hides it light under a bushel.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Restrained. Malty with an unusual floral note. Like parma violets but not as intense. Tangerine. Crab apple. With water, lemon peel.
Palate: Crisp. Flowing mouthfeel. Sweets flavours, like Baby Jellies (pear and pineapple drops). And also those “poppies sweets” I ate in my childhood. Definitely candy shop flavours. The alcohol numbs the tongue as well.
Finish: Dry and spicy. Peppery. With this sweetie aftertaste.
Comment: Quite an unusual aromatic profile. Not unpleasant though.
