Nose
Oak backed with blueberry jam and cut with apple cider. Plump and scented and just a tiny hint of mustiness in the background.
Palate
Sweet and quite tongue coating. Icing sugar on stewed plums with a pleasant acidity. This cooked almost jammy effect continues across the tongue.
Finish
Long and clean.
Comment
A big Linkwood, but clearly from there.

Nose
Malty and fruity. Rich grassy character. Honey, dry hay, Victoria plums, ripe apricot. Summer in its glory !
Palate
Silky feel. Luscious fruity palette with fizzy ginger ale. Elegant and generous.
Finish
Dry but lingering and ending in a dovetail fruity display.
Comment
Plentiful. Uplifting. Skip the dessert and enjoy a liquid fruit basket.
