Nose
Sweet and slightly oily. Horlicks. Developing grass cuttings.
Palate
Quite viscous, intensely-focused summer fruits, lots of spice.
Finish
Long and drying, with a hint of aniseed and plain chocolate.
Comment
More well-chosen wood.

Nose
A wonderful runny honey note, deep, luxuriant. Also warmed malt loaf.
Palate
That honey note is here, also mouth feel is very much honey comb. Plenty of apples, peaches, apricots and baked fruit pudding.
Finish
Long and spicy.
Comment
This is clearly one of the distilleries to watch, great stuff.
