Nose
Complex mix of ripe peachy fruit, baked banana, fruit smoothie, orange peel/blossom. Light nuttiness/malt, cream. Water adds weight and brings out extra maturity and depth.
Palate
Rich with good impact, slightly dry, then tingling spices. Heavy and quite explosive. Once again, it deepens (and dries slightly) with water.
Finish
Long, rich, cooked peach.
Comment
Has the X factor.

Arthur Motley

Nose
Fizzy oranginess, steamed apple pudding, furniture polish, sherbert and mixed peel. Comb honey, fresh and perfectly ripe pears.
Palate
Complex.
Finish
Christmas pudding with flaming alcohol, and burnt twigs.
Comment
Right in so many ways: balanced but stimulating, challenging but comforting. It reminded me of Clynelish.
