Nose
Lightly floral and powdery to start with green banana,lily of the valley, peach blossom, then balanced, creamy/creme brulee oak giving a needed backbone.
Palate
Very pure,extending that peach/floral character into light jasmine. Creamy with red fruits and a zesty citric lift .
Finish
The tropical fruits bunch together, then burst in the throat.
Comment
A gorgeous,luscious dram. ‘Morangie to the max.

Nose
Tangy. Grassy. Freshly cut grass. Aniseed. Fennel. The sharp tanginess rounds up on time as vanilla slowly creeps in. Gets creamier and creamier.
Palate
Silky and caressing feel. Smooth but crisp too. Aniseed drop. Juicy William pear.
Finish
Fizzy,lingering and lemony.
Comment
A lovely sunny dram,far more complex than expected. Pure and straight. A beautiful first fill bourbon style.
