No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Fruity. Cider apple. Crème brûlée. A wave of vanilla slowly emerges. Candied chestnut. Slightly grainy.
Palate: Sweet and smooth. The grainy character lingers. Not integrated caramel syrup? Weak at mid palate.
Finish: Sweet, bland.
Comment: Does not reflect a quality spirit. Looks as if it had been sweetened.
Nose: Perfumed and grassy, cumin and cinnamon, fresh fir, curry leaf/methi. Exotic and some complexity.
Palate: A floral start: freesia. The Turkish yoghurt (it's different to Greek) and apricot giving a thick feel before yielding to spiciness. Good length.
Comment: Spicy rather than blandly sweet.
