Nose
Very similar grassy vanilla pro le to other drams of late – sultanas, apricots round it out, with sage, tea, bay leaves, ginger, toffee and some woodiness.
Palate
Aha, it comes to life – vibrancy but woodiness, with a nice oily spirit. Nutmeg and pepper, with some cinnamon, dark chocolate, and coffee. Muscovado sugar and vanilla.
Finish
Short, peppery, sweet and a touch unbalanced.
Comment
Nice enough, but it’s hard to feel too excited about this.

Nose
Light and gentle with a very heady oral perfume note. There is some gentle tropical fruits with mango, pineapple, papaya and pomegranate playing a part. A touch of fresh cut grass.
Palate
A turn away from the nose with huge richness, but that heady oral note comes through still. There's a creaminess, Chantilly cream, vanilla and Tiramisu to it.
Finish
Swift and a little sharp with a touch of menthol and vanilla.
Comment
A nicely balanced dram showing a line between wood and fruit. Good stuff.
