A two-sided malt, with two different expressions on the nose and on the palate. The alcohol needs to be tamed with water.
No age statement
Nose: Floral. Grassy. Gillyflower. Freshly mown lawns. Honeycomb. Barley sugar. A touch of linseed.
Palate: Oily and fat. Very fruity and sherbety. A big mouthful of William's pear.
Finish: Slightly biting. Warm and lingering.
Comment: A two-sided malt, with two different expressions on the nose and on the palate. The alcohol needs to be tamed with water.
Nose: Intense, attractive quite 'green' nose. Water reveals a lovely fragrance: a posy of wild flowers but also some rooty notes and a hint of malt bins.
Palate: Great explosion of flavour unreduced. Dried flowers, crisp malt. Water calms it down making it creamy, soft and gentle. Lovely.
Finish: Floral, spicy, complex.
Comment: Great delivery, all coming together on the finish.
