Nose
Light with good lactone notes alongside Galia melon and cake mix. Softly fruited and slightly exotic in the way the orchard fruits are pepped up by a gingery/allspice note. Piney with water.
Palate
Juicy light white fruits,sweet apple. Good spread of flavours. Subtle sweet fruits with an intense spiciness then some coconut .
Finish
Long and spicy.
Comment
Elegant and sophisticated.

Nose
Grassy,light. A muesli bowl with dried summer fruit.Barley sugar. Lemonade. A touch of vanilla.
Palate
Smooth with a fresh sweet character. A mix of mint and aniseed like infused in aherbal tea.
Finish
Drier but keeping a nice refreshing character.
Comment
Nothing sophisticated but an easygoing summer dram to sip on a warm day. A Scottish pastis.
