Nose
Shy. Grassy. Angelica and tarragon. Aniseed freshness. Hint of lime. Unwinds slowly. Rhubarb compote. Gets perfumy. Touch of vetiver.
Palate
Round, velvety. Alcohol is perfectly integrated. Lemon posset. A touch of bakewell tart.
Finish
Refreshing. Mint chocolate.
Comment
A dram which needs time to open. Good balance, some complexity and firm body.

Nose
Oak and caramel vie for position, then cut grass and a little citrus.
Palate
Again citrus brings a lift, creamy. Mouthfilling and slick. Glacé cherries and marzipan notes as well.
Finish
Rich and coating.
Comment
A restorative dram for those quiet, reflective moments
