Dave Broom

Nose
Nutty to start. Quite crisp with fresh orange peel,dried flowers and an odd note akin to linoleum. Vanilla and with water ginger. Seems young.
Palate
Dusty/powdery start with light spice. Balanced though.Some milk chocolate,dried grass and just the trace of fading flowers.
Finish
Spice.
Comment
Balanced if not hugely complex.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Initially coffee then a polish note comes through. There is orange here in abundance but tempered with a floral edge. A little spice zing lurks too.
Palate
Pretty light given the nose. Malty sweetness and vanilla dominate. A little oak adds some dryness to give good balance.
Finish
Lingering with good grip.
Comment
An enjoyable whisky which will do well as a summer drink.
