Nose
A veritable fruit bowl: apples and pears, peaches, nectarines and pineapples mix with powdered ginger and orris root. Fabric conditioner and nail varnish remover.
Palate
Interesting powdery texture, turns fizzy. Pineapple, unripe nectarines, apple compote with cream and pine-tree sap die away until you're left with buttered warm wholegrain bread.
Finish
Medium in length, with the brown bakery characters sticking it out.
Comment
A slalom of a whisky – unexpected twists and turns.

Nose
Exotic curiosity. Peaches and mango juice, dried apricots, jasmine and sauternes. Sultanas and crushed green tomatoes, nutmeg and ginger. Elegant.
Palate
More maltiness showing through, which is a shame. Ends up too chewy and cereal-like. Ginger shows, with tannins, apricots, coriander, sultanas and honey.
Finish
Long undertone of sultanas, too peppery, woody. Average at the end.
Comment
First impressions were strong, the romance fizzled out. We're just good friends.
