Nose
Soft melon,pineapple,boiled sweets.
Palate
Clean malt delivery,crystallised fruit. Well balanced.
Finish
Quite short but more-ish.
Comment
Beautifully presented with fruit and barley working together. But a tad polite and falls just short of superstar status.

Nose
Not much to it; pear,marshmallow,tin of Edinburgh Rock. Later creamy milk chews.
Palate
Thin and unsubstantial. Toffee apples?
Finish
Short,unremarkable.
Comment
Not much of an impression.
