Nose
Light almost lean, grassy nose: baled hay, light lemon, light peat. Has a mashy note with a subtle undertow of cucumber, sweet oak, earth. Water wakes it up.
Palate
These flavours are delivered best on the palate. Crisp and direct to start then softening into light toffee, ginger and a mouth-filling softness.
Finish
Hint of malt. Fresh.
Comment
A successful and intriguing balance between fragrance and dryness. Worth a look.

Nose
Mint sirop and an aromatic fragrant fruit, like guava. A good shake of spice, indicating a fair amount of age. With more time and water, lots of melon.
Palate
Intense mouthfilling fruit: oranges, apples and quince jelly.
Finish
Drying woodiness with a creosoted edge.
Comment
A real fruit bomb, dusted with spice. Deserves to be popular.
