Tasting notes
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: Fresh, breezy and brimming with pears and other ripe orchard fruits. Some dried grass, vanilla and a kiss of oak spice in there too.
Palate: Soft and delicate with hay and runny honey, before moving into warm meringue, macadamia nuts and lemon sherbets with more of those now poached pears.
Finish: Gentle, more conference pears and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Comment: A light summer dessert dram to sip during the afternoon sunlight.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Takes its time to reveal all that it’s holding, but then it’s all meadow grass, corn flowers, apple blossom and hyacinths.
Palate: Gentle with an edge of grain and sugar syrup running through it. Starts to move into more savoury notes as it goes, roast honey nuts and tingling spices.
Finish: The spices take just a little time to die down, leaving honey and nut cornflakes.
Comment: A really gentle yet complex whisky that offers much more once it is left for a little.
