Nose
Light,quite delicate. Cream soda. Orange drops. White currant jelly.
Palate
Sweet and round.As delicate as on the nose. Berries in yogurt. A touch of powder ginger.
Finish
Soft,with a spicy lingering note.
Comment
Harmonious as a water colour. A full display of soft flavours. A lovely springtime whisky to enjoy with red fruit.
