Notes

A touch of pepper and grappa nose prickle gave way to buttery popcorn, butterscotch, Calvados, black tea and custard Danish. It seemed more perfumed and attractive with water – the grappa became Williams; then custard creams, honey, candle-wax and citric freshness appeared. The unreduced palate was sweet and zesty at the same time – juicy fruits (melon, gooseberry, lemon) counter-balancing sweet tobacco, Fisherman’s Friends and ginger. With water, it retained a vanilla, honey and Dolly Mixture sweetness but we detected an increase the aniseed, dill, liquorice and sugar-coated fennel seed side of the palate. From the distillery that pioneered purifiers on stills.
