Another vibrant springtime aperitif.
Gordon & MacPhail
No age statement
Year of Bottling
Nose: Lively and young. Green oak, balsa wood, lemon. With water, green fig, marshmallow, summer fruits and aromatic top notes.
Palate: Alcohol obscures the sweet centre. Water opens up grassiness, pear, baked apple. Concentrated.
Finish: Clean and short.
Comment: Another vibrant springtime aperitif.
Nose: Fruity. Zesty. Vanilla rises up in sweet waves. Orchard fruits. Fresh and lively. Needs time to open.
Palate: Surprisingly sweet in spite of the high strength. Coating. Ripe apricots, peaches.
Finish: Lingering, slightly heavy but satisfying. Candied ginger. Almondy.
Comment: A wake up dram. Not a great deal of complexity but an enjoyable fruitiness to make you think of springtime.
