Review by Gordon & MacPhail

Colour

Golden

Nose

Soft, sweet honeycomb aromas layered with ripe banana, pear, and fresh vanilla pod. Wisps of peat smoke and grassy seaside undertones complement hints of malt.

Palate

Medium-bodied; kiwi, banana, and the zest of blood oranges follow plump, ripe pear flavours. Mouthwarming cracked peppercorn evolves and, with time, reveals drying cocoa powder.

Finish

Drying with lingering notes of charred oak.
