Nose
Another pinkish one. Nougat, flower stems when neat, fruity and juicy with water when there's melon, strawberry, cassis and baked banana. Good.
Palate
A slightly soapy start. The fruitiness which lies behind slightly hidden and the spirit seems a little covered.
Finish
Cloying.
Comment
This starts so promisingly, but the soapiness knocks it for me.

Nose
Orange squash, sugar soap and wet grass. A bit thin on the nose, with a confected cakiness.
Palate
Fairy liquid, with some buttery, fruit pastry.
Finish
More of those dishwater suds.
Comment
Disappointing to drink given the price tag and all the fancy frippery that goes with a bottling like this. I much prefer the 10 Years Old and Artisan cask!
