Nose
Dry and biscuity with a vegetable note here as well - more turnip than cabbage. Raffia and wet wood. Burnt toast with peach jam. A pleasing waxiness comes with water.
Palate
Gentle and creamy. Florals and soft fruits with a balancing crunch of malt
Finish
Light and soft.
Comment
Well assembled and while you see the joins when it is neat, water makes it more coherent.

Nose
Fruity. Apples and pears (more the skin than the flesh).Shortcake. Quite buttery. Opens on soft nutty notes. Fresh almond, pistachio.
Palate
Fluid. Sweet at first but develops on crisp oaky flavours. Spices arrive in a big wave and linger. Dry maltiness. Sweeter with water.
Finish
Dry, narrow, spicy.
Comment
A deceptive sweetness on the nose that is defeated by an obvious oakiness. Water gives a better balance. But the palate lacks subtlety.
