Nose
Buttered popcorn, green apple and raspberry jam. Moves across to polished oak tables. Becomes leathery, tack rooms and candle wax. Apple pies and washing.
Palate
Honey syrup and lemon verbena tea. Citrus appears, blueberry pancakes and the sweetness of syrup waffles, honey-nut cornflakes and warm almond milk. A little waxy at the end.
Finish
Tannins and spices, then long and juicy with fresh citrus.
Comment
A great drop of grain. Intriguing with layers that peel away, who called grain simple

Nose
Boom! Big oak spice. Vanilla and just a waft of smoke in the background. Hints of apple and a little old-sweetshop.
Palate
A light mouthfeel. Notes of both lemon peel and lime just swim over the tongue.
Finish
A smidgin of spice, before the citrus really makes its presence felt; fresh zesty lemon peel and lime. Long, just keeps going and going. Almost refreshes you – ready for another go.
Comment
Worth a try just for the zing and zip of that citrus finish alone. Mouth-puckering!
