The initial nose was a combination of oak shavings and linseed oil with sweeter aromas arriving very quickly. We discovered very ripe peaches and nectarines, toffee apple sponge pudding, Scotch pancakes, Bourbon vanilla buttercream and Terry’s Chocolate Orange. Sweet flavours dominate on the palate neat as well, but at the same time zesty as a lemon or lime rind, mouth drying and fizzy like orange flavoured Tango popping candy. Adding a drop of water increases the sweetness on the nose; orange cream fondant, fudge, caramelized sugar, vanilla pods and candied orangeand lemon peel. The taste is like an iced mulled wine with cloves and cinnamon and a true Sorrento Limoncello. This is a very elegant example from Edinburgh‘s only operating distillery.
