Nose
Strawberry cordial and lots of stewed fruits: apricots and peaches. Quite delicate and needed coaxing to bring out buttered croissant pastry.
Palate
Rhubarb and ginger with a gentle spiciness that tingled down the sides of the tongue. Apple and pear drizzled with runny honey. A salving freshness and the perfect balance of spirit and wood.
Finish
Warm, soothing.
Comment
This whispers in your ear and draws you in – very restrained and sophisticated.

Nose
Juicy Fruit chewing gum, brandy snap biscuits, vanilla essence, candyfloss and banana custard – surely everyone's favourite dessert.
Palate
Young and clean, with more vanilla, citrus zest and maltiness.
Finish
The sweetness descends into oak and green apple skins as the palate dries.
Comment
Nothing out of the ordinary; a well-made whisky that ticks the boxes. Just don't expect any fireworks. More Cath Kidston than Johnny Rotten.
