Notes

A brittle, elegant and superbly complex initial nose. It displayed pear, quince, lime blossom, ripe mango and pineapple juice. Hints of sweet clotted cream fudge, glue sticks, green apples, mixed nuts and dried wild flowers all mingled underneath. Water revealed strawberry jam with vanilla pods, ground coconut, spearmint, leafy petrichor, pink marshmallows and rose petals. Some sweet roast apples and dried orange peel as well. The palate was beautifully balanced and showed plenty of warming ginger, cloves and vanilla-laced tannins. Deftly peppery, lightly bitter and with aniseed, toasted fennel and kumquat. With reduction it evolved more towards fresh fruits and an effervescent texture. Satsumas, lime pith, earl grey tea, orange marmalade, barley bread and a hint of milk chocolate. The definition of easy, mature, quaffable single malt.
