Nose
Closed and quite distant aromas: lemon barley water, bitter lemon, light oak, alcohol. Water doesn't improve it but does reveal some sulphury notes akin to a gym changing room.
Palate
Showing more weight. Candied fruits. Becomes tart and acidic after a sweet start. Fizzy.
Finish
Light malt, sherbert.
Comment
The lack of interaction between oak and spirit makes this hard to get excited about.

Nose
Poached pears, melon and lychees, along with vanilla. Attractive. With water there is more floral character, like standing in a florists trying to choose what to get her.
Palate
Lightly toffeeish, with melon and Jelly Babies.
Finish
Brown bread maltiness.
Comment
Balanced, attractive and a rightdown-the-middle Speysider. An anytime dram.
