Nose
?Delicate, floral and grassy. Lemon balm, dry hay, honey. Gillyflower. Vanilla swirls up with a touch of lemon. Really enticing. Gets biscuity on time. Orange drop.
Palate
?Smooth and caressing. Satin-like. Ripe summer fruit. Victoria plums, poached pears with a hint of hibiscus syrup. Drying on soft spices. Half-tone aromatic display.
Finish
?Gentle spices, clean dryness.
Comment
?An elegant whisky which makes me think of a charming watercolour. Relaxing, pleasantly balanced.

Nose
? Really shy at first, then in time a fresh malty note comes through. Orange barley sugar sweets. Hay loft. Dutch vanilla waffle biscuits.
Palate
?Gentle and delicate, elements of fruit, honey and cask influence (sweet vanilla and clotted cream), all nicely in balance.
Finish
?Spices start to build then slowly dry out.
Comment
?A really lovely drop, nothing is out of balance here. Certainly one for a warm summer's night with friends.
