Sweet grain and oak play against each other beautifully.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Honey-nut cornflake cereal with oat milk and toasted coconut. Popcorn, toffee-dipped apple slices, custard tart, rye crackers and cream cheese, lemon peel, and lovely oak spices.
Palate: Medium. Caramel popcorn, vanilla nut-milk latte, hazelnut, peppery spice, ground clove, a hint of liquorice, blueberries, and cooked apple.
Finish: Medium-long, on honey-nut cornflakes, nutmeg, and finally milk chocolate.
Comment: Sweet grain and oak play against each other beautifully.
Nose: Grassy. Mown lawn, daffodil, chamomile tea, and freshly cut elderflower. Under this, there’s candied orange, vanilla cookie with icing, and blossom honey.
Palate: Medium-full. Dried mango pieces, fresh fig, and candied citrus peels. White grape and elderflower cordial. Tinned mandarin segments.
Finish: As the fruits begin to fade, vanilla sponge cake emerges.
Comment: Evolves from grassy to citrus forward with time in the glass.
