Nose
Floral, estery. Lavender. Lemon sherbet. Melon balls. Liquorice. Chocomint. Quite complex. Creamy porridge. Slightly fiery.
Palate
Tangy mouthfeel. Fiery. Reserved maltiness. Water dampens the fire down but disperses the magical fragrances.
Finish
High on the fire scale. Slowly calms down with sweet almondy notes.
Comment
Promising nose. Palate hard to tame, disappointing.

Nose
Clean, dry, slightly perfumed malt: toast, wholemeal flour, oolong tea, lemon and a light touch of chocolate.
Palate
Attractive, dry and spicy plus a creamy light toffee note.
Finish
Dry liquorice.
Comment
Lovely.
