Nose
Light but spirity. Floral and grassy. Freshly cut lawn. Clean linen. A touch of linseed oil. In time cream soda and lemonade. Orange drop.
Palate
Satin-like. Oily and sweet at first but the alcohol bite dries the palate. Water cuts the edges but dilutes the flavours.
Finish
Quickly fading.
Comment
The nose is pleasant but the alcohol makes it too sharp. The same with the palate. The cask has not mellowed it enough.

Nose
Very shy and light at first, quite delicate. Eventually there are jelly babies, fruit sweets and orange blossom.
Palate
Again gentle at first with some rye like notes lurking. Then spiced plum jam and soft fruits.
Finish
The spices arrive and an alcohol bite.
Comment
Seems to be focused on that big finish.
