Nose
Slightly unripe pear/melon, touch of green grass, balsa wood and grape skin - even grappa. Slightly raw.
Palate
Sweet and better than the nose. Spicy with hay and light wheat chaff in the centre. Just lacks expressiveness and integration.
Finish
Clean and short.
Comment
Like No2 this is delicate but while that shows good distillery character this just seems not quite fully formed. Pleasant, but pleasant isn't enough after two decades.

Nose
Grassy, light. Honeyed syrup. Poached pears. Touch of lemon balm.
Palate
Sweet mellow. Gently flows on the tongue. Silky texture. Lovely balance. Star anis. Peaches in tin. Sherbety
Finish
Lively, fizzy. Soothing on fresh almonds and aniseed.
Comment
A whispering whisky which speaks up on the finish. Ideal for celebrating the Indian summer.
