Nose
Gorgeously honeyed with thick slabs of exotic fruit – peach, mango, pineapple, honeydew melon all delightfully sprinkled with caster sugar. Hints of vanilla and a thread of mineral accented lemon emerges.
Palate
Oilier than the nose, which subdues the exuberance of the tropical fruit. There is more barley but the fruit certainly hasn't disappeared! Lovely balancing citrus and minerality.
Finish
Long and oily with barley, minerals and vanilla lingering.
Comment
A real fruit bomb of a malt!

Nose
Enchanting, ginger, a little citrus peel, freshly ground malted barley finishing on lovely mowed hay notes.
Palate
Great balance, fruit and spice. Honey, faint butterscotch, raisins moving into spicy orange with a discreet hint of air dried wood.
Finish
Dry, no astringency which is appetising. Medium length, lush fading vanilla.
Comment
Enjoyable dram, enjoyed it much more once it opened up and with no water. Well balanced and thoroughly enjoyable.
