Nose
Sweet. Lemon barley water, honey and cut grass. Hint of grain? Certainly has that limey scent of high alcohol. American cream soda, apple pie and with water, mace and vanilla.

Finish
Smooth and gentle.
Comment
Exemplary blending. Try with soda or on rocks.

Nose
Plenty of vanilla up front, then this glorious lemon note. Key Lime pie and baked New York lemon cheese cake come to mind. A hint of cimmamon and oak too.
Palate
Has a very moreish creamy feeling to it that is then cut through with a zing of gingery lemon. Vanilla custard, and a certain nuttiness follow.
Finish
Long enough to contemplate pouring another dram.
Comment
Perfect balance and a great addition to the blending world.
