Nose
Fresh, citric (lemon) and gristy with hints of baked fruit and spice. Quite grassy with a lovely, sweet barley note and some light oak.
Palate
Showing a little more oak than the nose, but it's still quite fresh with some sweet-ish barley, honey and citrus. Good depth and intensity.
Finish
Long and crisp with white fruit and lingering citrus joined by some sweet spices. Very pleasant.
Comment
A pleasant, summery, aperitif dram.

Nose
Fresh mango, crushed almond and buttered white bloomer. Some green veg and Madeira cake.
Palate
More delicate than I thought this would be, there is an orange creams note, followed by some milk chocolate and heather honey. Vanilla and lavender give this a floral flourish at the end.
Finish
Slightly bitter which takes the edge off the great palate. Some mint and a little bit of lemon zest.
Comment
Two thirds of the way there, it just doesn't quite deliver on the finish.
