Neat is direct and hot with lemon sherbert/love hearts.Water brings out elderflower and fruit salad.
Finish
Light. Green grassiness.
Comment
A taste of summer in winter.

Nose
Light but spirity.Dry hay.Cut grass.A hint of angelica.A grainy touch.
Palate
Smooth and sweet. Given the strength,one could expect much more aggressiveness. Pear Williams
Finish
Fizzy and warm,the alcohol shows up.
Comment
On the palate,much more like a fruit spirit (Pear Williams) than like a whisky.A bit grainy on the nose.
