Colour: Warm gold
Nose: Heathery smoke balanced with subtle floral notes
Palate: Gentle "peat-reek" flavours with hints of citrus tones and malty nuttiness
Finish: Lingering smoke and peat with a touch of malted barley sweetness
Nose: Citrussy, very aromatic. A distant dry smokiness swirling up. A mineral touch (wet pebble). Then a fruity whiff of ripe peaches and pears. All is wrapped in a delicate honeyed veil.
Palate: Rich, silky, enticing. Oily, getting drier on the tongue as spices burst out. Some green gage flavours mingling with spices.
Finish: Lemony, drying on ginger.
Comment: A charming nose with a less delicate palate but all together a refreshing dram.
