Nose
Grassy, floral and biscuity. Meadowsweet flowers, dry hay. Oat biscuits. Enticing and light. Opens on citrus notes. Lemon posset. Stays floral all the way.
Palate
Very smooth. Beeswax, rich honey custard, candied lemon. Rich, complex and luscious.
Finish
Lingering, drying on ginger dust.
Comment
A classic old Speysider? Mature and lively at the same time. Really a perfect achievement.

Nose
Instantly spice laden, fragrant jasmine rice, green tea, caramel wafers, cardamom seeds before you crush them. A hint of white chocolate as well.
Palate
Honey sweetness, silky, a fruity note of ripe mango and peaches. There is a nice oak grip.
Finish
The oak grips with a gentle spice layer at the end.
Comment
Nice stuff, well balanced and intriguing.
