My tasting notes

Nose: Fresh, fruity. yellow fruit, melon, apricot, peach, some fresh oak too, acacia honey, slight confectionary and floral notes, lemon and orange blossom. Great start!

Palate: Barley sweetness, fresh fruit, a little spice and grapefruit bitterness, still some honey and slight nuttiness.

Finish: Mix of honey, nuts, grapefruit and slightly drying oak spice. Lingering nicely!

With water: The nose is even fruitier, the palate is sweeter with more honey and the finish is a little spicier but less bitter.


What a delicious dram! Definitely one to add to my auction wacthlist!


Slàinte all!
