Nose
Fruity. Zesty. Vanilla rises up in sweet waves. Orchard fruits. Fresh and lively. Needs time to open.
Palate
Surprisingly sweet in spite of the high strength. Coating. Ripe apricots, peaches.
Finish
Lingering, slightly heavy but satisfying. Candied ginger. Almondy.
Comment
A wake up dram. Not a great deal of complexity but an enjoyable fruitiness to make you think of springtime.

Nose
Lively and young. Green oak, balsa wood, lemon. With water, green fig, marshmallow, summer fruits and aromatic top notes.
Palate
Alcohol obscures the sweet centre. Water opens up grassiness, pear, baked apple. Concentrated.
Finish
Clean and short.
Comment
Another vibrant springtime aperitif.
