2022 Limited Edition
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Sesame seeds, clementine, ripe honeydew melon, and fresh jackfruit. Underneath, sticky toffee pudding, milk chocolate, and lemon zest.
Palate: Full-bodied. Concentrated juicy blood orange and candied citrus peels, baked banana, heather honey drizzled over poached pears, and a little brown sugar with cinnamon.
Finish: Long, lingering on those orange notes.
Comment: Big flavours with depth, and quite easy drinking, belying the ABV.
Nose: Lemon sherbet, boiled pineapple-flavoured sweets, and pear drop. Redcurrant jelly. Toasted macadamia nut, caramel fudge, wafer ice-cream cone, and cup mushrooms fried in butter. A dusting of cinnamon and cassia.
Palate: Medium-full bodied. Darker fruit notes of raspberry and blackberry, with pear drop, caramel, and a hint of maple syrup. Mocha, but heavy on the coffee. Underlying clove, liquorice, and herbal sage.
Finish: Long. On woody spice and pear.
Comment: A little water helps, teasing out more caramel and aniseed notes.
