Nose
Pale, fragile and lacy. A very discreet nose with whiffs of the mill room and then daffodils. Cool light and very subtle but with real sweetness behind.
Palate
Very pure and with more intensity than the nose suggests. Creamy texture. Gentle pear like fruits and again water helps to spread the flavours over the palate. Lovely texture.
Finish
Gooseberry.
Comment
Discreet, subtle and pure with great balance for one so young - and marked accordingly.

Nose
Malty, fresh. Green malt. Lemon juice. Quite herbal. Lemon balm. Angelica. Fresh coriander. Pleasantly aromatic. With water, a touch of tablets.
Palate
Crisp, crunchy. Fizzy on the tongue. Very fresh and clean. Obviously young.
Finish
Short, sherbet. A note of almond milk in the back.
Comment
Young, a bit fiery but very refreshing. A summertime dram.
