Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    Nose: Soft and sweet, with heather meadows and some honeysuckle. Poached pear, crunchy apples, cream and a hint of sharpness.

    Palate: Sweet and malty, with some lemon zest sharpness up front. Softens in the mouth to reveal more crushed malt, some light cream and a touch of sharp apple. Darker woody notes sit behind, with resin and clove.

    Finish: Gentle and woody, with new oak, rolled oats, soft spice, apple skin and some creaminess.

    Comment: A light dram with more depth than it at first seems - behind the gentle creamy character are some more spicy and woody notes that add complexity without making things too heavy.
