Nose
Sappy/fresh wood. Light touches of Shreddies and very light smoke. Cool and porcelain like. Gentle, but also hard to get into.
Palate
Better than the virtual neutrality of the nose. Direct with citrus zest, seashells. Clean with good length which slowly reveals light fleshy fruits, tinned fruit salad. Still light.
Finish
Gentle and short.
Comment
Strangely demanding as you try to extract what is there.

Nose
Perfumy. Floral and herbal. Gillyflower, lemon balm. Enticing and refreshing. Hint of fresh coriander. Then opens on sweeter notes. Vanilla syrup.
Palate
Velvety and round. White fruit, stewed peaches and pears. Lemon curd.
Finish
Medium long, drying on spices with a clean astringency.
Comment
A delicious dram, appetising and well structured. A Bowmore? An unpeated one then.
