Nose
Seriously perfumed and fruity, like a Sauvignon / Viognier cross. Hugely estery, pineapple and fresh wood shavings. Settles down to show a touch of barley and toffee but still very perfumed.
Palate
More restrained but the estery, grassy exotic fruit barrels through. A little more barley, but the fruit and vanilla explodes all over the place!
Finish
A little short and exceedingly bitter as the oak grips hard, but at the end there is no subduing that fruit.
Comment
An impressive spirit but far too perfumed for more than one glass.

Nose
Freshly cut straw, travel sweets, dried pineapple slices and honey. The nose is sweet but not sickly; well balanced and inviting.
Palate
A good melody of flavour here with blueberry and stewed summer fruits. Some element of blackcurrant lozenges and sloe berries.
Finish
A bit more sweetness in the finish, with a greater focus on the sloe berry elements.
Comment
Made sloe gin recently? Try this alongside it as a chaser!
