Notes

A creamy profile at first with an immediate aroma of spun sugar and highland toffee. Underneath there are notes of Dutch Genever, Turkish delight, sliced pears and freshly churned butter. Reduction brings a more elegant sweetness and notes of butterscotch, syrup sponge cake, maple danish, polished pine, camphor and eucalyptus sweeties. To taste there is an initial grassy, grape must aspect that moves towards wood-aged grappa, hay and sweetened porridge. When diluted this manifests as malted milk biscuits, tea leaves, ginger, white pepper, dried chilli flakes and a big slug of mirabelle eau de vie in the finish.
