Nose
Grassy, perfumy. Floral. Sweet meadow flowers, orange blossom. Exquisite. Pomegranate juice. Light and luscious.
Palate
Dry, crisp. But clean. Not as sweet as the nose leads you to expect. Spices dance on the tongue. Drying out into dust.
Finish
Fizzy, spicy. With a sweeter aftertaste. Orange drop.
Comment
An enticing note and a more “square” palate. It needs water to cut the edges. Quite refreshing and invigorating for a “floral dew”.

Nose
Sort of orange juice. Barley sweets. That sweet slightly bitter edge to it. Floral and honey notes as well. Gentle and complex.
Palate
Hits you with a whack of spices and grips the tongue. There is a crispness to it and slightly dusty.
Finish
Sweet with barley sugar.
Comment
Takes you one way and then hits you from the other. Great fun and complex.
