A pretty face with muddy feet.
Lowland, Aged 8 Years
Nose: Damp earth, kiwi, lemon Jif, tangerine. Pretty.
Palate: Citric, then woody and a touch buttery.
Finish: Crisp grassiness, with a little earthiness attached. Chocolate milk.
Comment: A pretty face with muddy feet.
Nose: Back to the bready template again: digestive biscuits, vanilla, melon, coconut matting with some sweetness behind. Pine needles.
Palate: Better than the nose and fills out with a splash of water shifting it into fruit smoothie territory. Soft and gentle.
Finish: Cocoa butter.
Comment: OK, but lacks impact and definition.
