Nose
Malty and grassy. Drying hay. Fresh straw. Lemonade. Light and fragrant. Opens on more citrus notes. Freshly squeezed orange juice. Appetising.
Palate
Light and crisp. A bit tangy but that fizzy feel is rather pleasant. It dances on the tongue. The same grassy profile as on the nose.
Finish
Fresh and dry.
Comment
Easy and refreshing. Probably young. It needs a small dash of water to cut the edges. An invigorating dram on a wintery day.

Nose
Buttery, popcorn, fresh cornbread, apple skins and a little mineral note. Water brings out peach skins and a hint of smoke.
Palate
Quite herbal and grassy. Starts off sweet then the spices wash over the palate, cumin and thyme.
Finish
Herbal and clean.
Comment
A gorgeous pre dinner dram, a little water brings out its sweet side.
