Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Lemon hot toddy, with whipped cream side. Then a sudden burst of orange blossom and excellent aged oak. A nose of two halves.
Palate: This has real oiliness and body to the palate with bergamot, satsuma, lemon and lime flavours on the palate.
Finish: Some spices and vanilla.
Comment: Round, sweet and well balanced. Like a packet of Starburst sweets.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Light, restrained at first nose. Vanilla infused herbal tea. A citrussy note. Something green. Freshly cut lettuce. Quite delicate.
Palate: Lovely smoothness. Fruity. Pear drop with some lemon. Drying on ground ginger.
Finish: Surprisingly lingering, slightly numbing because of the spiciness.
Comment: An uplifting and refreshing whisperer. Perfect morning dram with a bowl of fruit and cereal. Can take a dash of water to cut the edges.
