A dram that both intrigued and delighted the panel. We found the unreduced nose fresh and floral with cake mix, cookie dough and subtle wood smoke. Time revealed muscular notes of lamp oil, minerals, oats and furniture wax. A curious ‘pop’ of bubble gum also sprung us by surprise. Water brought gooseberry, elderflower and muddled mint along with gorse, wet leaves and gentle waxiness. The palate was oily with more bubblegum, a firm spiciness, cinnamon swirls and Tunnock’s tea cakes. There were suggestions of pear flesh, river reeds and tea tree oil. Reduction revealed waxed lemons, iced gems, herbs, lanolin and camphor-soaked vanilla pods.
