Nose
Fresh and citrusy, but made up of very light aromas: kiwi, cut grass, straw, hay barns. Melons and grapefruit, with the lemon curd note and vanilla dominating later.
Palate
Better than the nose thick spirit delivering oranges, salted caramel, olive oil, apricots and raisins, with some peppery, clove-like warmth that isn’t too tannic. Grassy, herbal; dried tea.
Finish
Short on fun, but long on the blander grassy and citrus notes.
Comment
Pleasing. Strength brings intensity of avours it wouldn’t otherwise have.

Nose
Another slow and gentle starter, in time heady creamy vanilla notes come out, Fruit and Nut chocolate bars and then a subtle smoke and oral edge starts to emerge, heather in bloom and gorse flowers.
Palate
The flavours really explode here with that rich chocolate and nutty. Then the smoke unfurls with warming cinnamon spices and hints of fruit.
Finish
Short, sharp and tangy like Chardonnay with a little drying smoke too.
Comment
An interesting layered blend that intrigues slowly.
