Tasting Notes

Nose

Soft, macerated apricot, melon and banana, along with sweet barley and a vanilla sheen. Hints of lime appear and there are charred oak notes in \r\nthe background.

Palate

Opens with malt biscuits and heavily oiled fruit. Dense, but unctuous and smooth with a touch of mature oak. However, it’s the layers of oily fruit that take centre stage.

Finish

Long and crisper as the granite and citrus notes arrive, a fleeting hint of peat smoke.

Comment

If the palate was as exuberant as the nose then this would have been exceptional.
