Tasting Notes

Nose

Light and zesty. Gentle lemon-lime, honey water, icing sugar, soft cream cheese (like Philly), with subtle fermented fruit notes bordering on the farmyard-esque.

Palate

Light and easy going on the palate. It’s distillate forward and a touch youthful but tempered by stewed apples and pears, vanilla cream and jasmine tea.

Finish

White grape, vanilla and gentle green tea dryness fade quickly.

Comment

Points for putting distillery character front and centre, but I’d like to revisit when it’s older.
