Nose
Cereal and stewed rhubarb,apple. There's more oak here,but it's balanced and toasty. Light pot pourri notes and a lick of varnish. Very fine boned with slight floral lift.
Palate
Sweet and with a certain discreet power. There's a dark undertow to this which is overlaid with tangerine and a slightly confected flavour with water. Quite tight,but subtle.
Finish
Dry with good length. Menthol.
Comment
Quietly understated. An Edinburgh lawyer (but with a personality).

Nose
A slight farmyard note,like a pasture after the rain.Sweet almost menthol quality. Table polish.
Palate
Sweetness continues with light,nutty notes. The melted brown sugar tone shines through.
Finish
Very satisfying.
Comment
Very rounded performance that almost creeps up on you.
