Nose
Herbal, grassy and fragrant. Walking through a summer flower meadow, stepping on a path of thyme and lemon verbena, brushing past some violets before a fragrant forest of oak and pine.
Palate
A light-as-gossamer body, carrying a chalky, dusty vanilla core on the palate. Rum 'n' raisin fudge and spicy, dried chilli flakes bring some interest in the mid-palate.
Finish
Dusty chalk and wood shavings.
Comment
The palate was sadly a bit one-dimensional for me following the delicate nuances of the nose.

Nose
Very gentle, a little farm yard, soft goat's cheese, tweed bolts and some soft wood notes. Very sweet Bourbon and toffee layers, but all vastly fragrant.
Palate
Poached Conference pear, delicate notes of lemon and peach skin. Plenty coming from the American oak in terms of sweetness, a little prickle of spice too.
Finish
Breathlessly swift but very honeyed, those spices giving a little prickle too.
Comment
A simple malt that is great at delivering sweetness, would be great pre dinner.
