Nose
Light and grassy and slightly stony to start. In time there's sweet persimmon and nut.
Palate
Pure and very clean. Sweet lime,green fruits then a hint of smoke and a buttery meadowsweet/chamomile note. Light to the point of fragility.
Finish
Honey,lemon and a little ginger.
Comment
Delicacy to the fore. A breakfast dram.

Fruity and sweet. Ripe cherry with a suggestion of honey and nuts.
Palate
Smooth and velvety. The fruit theme continues with a gentle suggestion of smoke.
Finish
Medium,with a pleasant dry spiciness.
Comment
A perfect dram for after dinner.
