Nose
Light, with marzipan, hints of Play-Doh, lemon zest, chopped toasted hazelnuts and fresh raspberries.
Palate
Wow –this is Cranachan in a glass: tart Scottish raspberries, whipped cream and honey and toasted oats, with the addition of some menthol/ aniseed notes too.
Finish
Lingering notes of citrus zest and those raspberries.
Comment
Time to start stocking up for your Burns' Night toast, me thinks.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Big alcohol at first then prickly apricot skins, mango and orange juice, toasted coconut, macaroons, expensive face cream and hand lotion.
Palate
Quite malty, Nice biscuits, custard creams, soft toffee pennies, milk chocolate, cocoa powders and then a pastry note.
Finish
Short but juicy.
Comment
Layers of flavour emerge once the alcohol prickle is knocked back with water.
