Soft fruits are the DNA here.
Experimental Collection, Wheat 115, 11 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Freshly rolled Cuban cigar, apricots in syrup and hints of Armagnac. The soft fruit is the dominant nose giving a lovely, inviting aroma.
Palate: Again, soft and delicious with the Armagnac (a young XO) coming through. Highly drinkable and well rounded. A touch of black banana and those apricots again are now mixed with peaches. Soft and delicious.
Finish: Just a nice hint of oak with the jammy soft fruits rushing through.
Comment: Soft fruits are the DNA here.
Nose: Golden syrup, some orange creams, a touch of super sweet acacia honey and a lovely floral note. Fresh, vibey and really good.
Palate: Punnets of fresh orchard fruit (plums and damsons) more vanilla pipe tobacco, a return of the golden syrup and some malty/biscuity notes for good measure.
Finish: Earthy, sidelined by a subtle creaminess and some freshly sliced red apple thrown in for good measure.
Comment: Another vibrant, fruity hit of goodness.
