Nose: Freshly cut straw, travel sweets, dried pineapple slices and honey. The nose is sweet but not sickly; well balanced and inviting.\n
Palate: A good melody of flavour here with blueberry and stewed summer fruits. \nSome element of blackcurrant lozenges and sloe berries. \n
Finish: A bit more sweetness in the finish, with a greater focus on the sloe berry elements.
Comment: Made sloe gin recently? Try this alongside it as a chaser!
Nose: Seriously perfumed and fruity, like a Sauvignon / Viognier cross. Hugely estery, pineapple and fresh wood shavings. Settles down to show a touch of barley and toffee but still very perfumed.
Palate: More restrained but the estery, grassy exotic fruit barrels through. A little more barley, but the fruit and vanilla explodes all over the place!\n
Finish: A little short and exceedingly bitter as the oak grips hard, but at the end there is no subduing that fruit.\n
Comment: An impressive spirit but far too perfumed for more than one glass.
