Nose
Restrained, light. Fruity. Litchi, pear. Vanilla syrup. Hint of parma violet too.
Palate
Sweet and smooth. Silky. Lovely feel. Elegant. Fruity and spicy. Apples and pears. Medlars. Crystallised ginger as well.
Finish
Drying on spices. Quite lingering.
Comment
Shy at first but revealing pleasant fruity flavours.

Nose
Shy at first, gentle and delicate. Then this creamy, golden syrup note comes through. Vanilla Danish pastry and a hint of oak lactone.
Palate
Moves a stage on from the nose, but still delicate. More spices start to come through, baked apple pie with vanilla ice cream.
Finish
Pretty long and warming.
Comment
Give this dram a little time to open up and reveal itself, and you will be rewarded.
