Tasting Notes

Nose

Mossy and leafy, a walk through a forest. Cigar tobacco, marshmallow and ginger spices shortbread. A fruity edge, like blueberry compote. Damp, old books and cotton, a gentle menthol edge, pinecones.

Palate

Mandarin juice, that blueberry compote, then brown toast and honey. A spiced layer, chili mayo and BBQ prawns. Earthy mossy note comes back.

Finish

Surprisingly becomes all sherbet fizz and then runny honey.

Comment

Serious. Separates then knits back together. Sherbet dips in the Cairngorms.
