Nose
Gentle and quite subtle to start with floral notes of honeysuckle, elderflower, meadowsweet and sweet lightly toasted spices.
Palate
Beautiful spread of flavours. Quite unctuous and, when neat, very spicy moving now into ginger. A whiff of curry leaf emerges with water.
Finish
Very pure with tangerine and light hints of flowers.
Comment
Quite restrained but with real elegance and charm.

Nose
Fruity and malty with an oaky frame. Ripe apricot, tinned peaches. Honey. Opens on pastry notes. Shortbread.
Palate
Sweet, silky (raw silk). A spicy explosion teases the taste buds. Pear drop.
Finish
Dry, intense,lingering.
Comment
The alcohol strength shows up. This dram needs water. A beautiful fruity and spicy character.
