Nose
Lemon hot toddy, with whipped cream side. Then a sudden burst of orange blossom and excellent aged oak. A nose of two halves.
Palate
This has real oiliness and body to the palate with bergamot, satsuma, lemon and lime flavours on the palate.
Finish
Some spices and vanilla.
Comment
Round, sweet and well balanced. Like a packet of Starburst sweets.

Nose
Light, restrained at first nose. Vanilla infused herbal tea. A citrussy note. Something green. Freshly cut lettuce. Quite delicate.
Palate
Lovely smoothness. Fruity. Pear drop with some lemon. Drying on ground ginger.
Finish
Surprisingly lingering, slightly numbing because of the spiciness.
Comment
An uplifting and refreshing whisperer. Perfect morning dram with a bowl of fruit and cereal. Can take a dash of water to cut the edges.
