Nose
Grassy with a distinctive nail varnish note. It fades and leads way to cereals. Barley sugar, dry hay, honey. Then a floral aroma. Meadowsweet and hawthorn blossom.
Palate
Smooth and sweet. Citrussy. Lemon posset, lemon grass. Lovely refreshing taste. The alcohol is well mastered.
Finish
Sweet, fresh, minty.
Comment
A lovely dram, straightforward and lively.

Nose
A sort of film canister note at first then pear drops, acetone. Fresh cut barley, warm bread and a grist edge. There is a sweetness too underlying things.
Palate
The sweetness comes through as does a creamy, almost Chantilly cream note. A lemon zest zip too.
Finish
Sweetness to the end.
Comment
An easy whisky to get on with, to relax with. All is in balance.
