Nose
Very light but aromatic. New make fragrances. Herbal, floral. Dry hay. Sweet meadow flowers. Wild garlic. Water brings out briny garnish.
Palate
Sweeter than expected. Light-bodied. Sharp and tangy. Malty and herbal flavours. Toasted hazelnuts. Definitely needs water.
Finish
Warm, nutty, dry.
Comment
Nose better than palate. A tired cask?

Nose
VERY heathery nose along with macadamia nut, biscuit, dry, hot bracken.
Palate
Clean and quite a sweet malty/nutty start. Good feel mid-palate. Very fresh and clean.
Finish
Heather. Biscuity.
Comment
A good, straightforward Jura.
