Nose
Tangy. A little spirity. Fudge. Caramelised apples. Vanilla and creamy notes tone the sharpness down. Polished floor.With water, rhubarb jam.
Palate
Much sweeter the nose let expect. An unpleasant cardboard and turpentine note. Not much behind.
Finish
Dry,spicy,quickly fading.
Comment
Disappointing.The nose has more than the palate.Less cardboardy with water but surprisingly fiery.

Nose
Citrusy,Lemsip powder,sherbet.
Palate
Sweeter than perhaps the nose suggested and fuller,with a beautiful lemon bonbon taste evolving into peach and melon.
Finish
Nicely balanced and very fruity.
Comment
Much much better than the old version.A perfect session whisky.
