Dave Broom

Nose
Light and discreet with some grass, limeade and a macadamia nuttiness. In time there's lemon and a wine-like perfume.
Palate
Very sweet with lifted aromatics. Delicate but with a subtly rich middle palate. Soft fruits.
Finish
Sweet grassy.
Comment
Bizarrely, the nose reminded me of an Argentinian Torrontes. Where's the famed Benrinnes meatiness?

Arthur Motley

72
Nose
Lots of cereal character: Shredded Wheat, hay, wet earth, and some sweet biscuits. Some fruit syrup and lemon peel.
Palate
Light and sweet, with no off-notes. Vanilla cream, peach and some cereal.
Finish
Hay.
Comment
Pleasant enough.
