Review by Gordon & MacPhail

Colour

Lightest Yellow

Nose

Ripe pear and stewed rhubarb steeped in honey and decadent raspberry jam mature into sweet meadow grasses complemented by underlying fresh lemon and lime edge.

Palate

Balanced, crisp green apple wrapped in salted dark chocolate accompanied by hints of peaches and cream and gentle menthol nuances

Finish

Light aniseed and warming white pepper develop on the finish whilst highlights of fresh lemon zest adds depth.
