Nose
Sweet and very pure. There's touches of wet clay, cowgum, apple sponge, bran, pecan, orange zest and apple. Seems young, but touches of varnish and wood oil suggests it's older than it appears.
Palate
Clean though a little soapy. Light citrus and crisp oak. Decent balance. Nutty power and good length.
Finish
Slightly malty.
Comment
Old with a certain sexy, slinky quality.

Nose
Rose (Turkish Delight), strawberry tart, and marshmallow. Pear drops and milk chocolate.
Palate
Wood dominated, with a lime pickle and a barky bitterness.
Finish
More bark, and a herby dryness.
Comment
One of those drams with a nose which is quite different to the palate. I worried that the bitterness might get too much after a few drams, but adored that confected, cute and fluffy nose.
