Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Floral and grassy. Honeyed flowers, lemon grass, green tea. Opening on fresh citrus notes. Lemon drop. A hint of butterscotch. Delicate and refreshing. More citrus with water.
Palate: Light and flowing. Silky texture. Smooth but with a subtle crispiness. Citrussy. Lemonade. Drying on spices.
Finish: Dry and clean with a slight astringency.
Comment: A lively uplifting elegant dram. Like an invigorating early morning walk in a scented garden.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Warm straw bales, toasted marshmallows, golden syrup, oak shavings then an orange syllabub note, lemon rind. Water brings a cedar note.
Palate: Sweet, honey, cinnamon swirls, dusty powdered spices, spiced pear and more citrus.
Finish: Gripping and gently drying.
Comment: A lovely restorative dram, nice stuff, well put together.
