Review by Gordon & MacPhail

Colour

Pale Straw.

Nose

Nose without Water Subtle Sherry aromas mingle with crème brûlée, apple, and fresh lemon notes.

Nose with Water Vanilla custard, toasted malt, and banana aromas are lifted by a zest lime edge.

Palate

Palate without Water Peppery initially with butterscotch, ripe banana, and orange zest flavours. A milk chocolate flavour develops and is complemented by a peppermint undertone.

Palate with Water Smooth and creamy with bursts of pepper. Raspberry, orange, and chocolate flavours combine with a sweet hint of toffee.
