Tasting Notes:
Producer's Notes

Nose: The aromatics open on soft, ripe, honey dew melon, papaya & passion fruit.  It's a fascinating fusion and together they provide the foundation for the strong mellow oak notes which bring character and power to the spirit.  On the third pass, the lemon and honey citrus flavours emerge, adding a defining clarity to the experience.

Palate: the freshness of the fruit caress the olfactory senses and provides the foundation for the biscuit sweetness of malted spring barley.  What crowns this classic is the time spent in Jurancon casks which has added a sophistication and style to the shy sensitive side of the island beauty.  The flavours of sultanas and super sweet raisins add the magic that makes this malt truly unique.

 

Finish: There is a refinement, a delicacy and a connoisseurship in the heart of this spirit that will appeal to those who seek new experiences, exciting and exclusive bottlings all designed and hand made with passion and price.
