Nose
Vegetable, cabbage/sulphur which flies off leaving some autumn leaves, light apple puree and crisp maltiness.
Palate
Rounded with substance and a syrup pudding sweetness in centre. Lime, then mixed nuts. Medium weight. Smooth and clean.
Finish
Dry, short, but balanced.
Comment
A solid performer.

Nose
Grassy. Cereals bowl. Dry hay. Muësli. Orange blossom honey. Biscuity. More citrus with water.
Palate
Round, satin-like. Caressing. Still that biscuit profile. Digestive biscuit. With a touch of lemon curd.
Finish
Dry, slightly fizzy on the tongue.
Comment
A pleasant dram. Water smoothes it but it loses its briskness.
