Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A delicate sweetness with a Chantilly cream edge, vanilla custard.
Palate: The sweetness continues, more toffee now with a milk chocolate edge.A little soft fruit too.
Finish: Smooth and coating but with a refreshing quality.
Comment: Very restorative dram and the sweetness does not take over the other elements.
