Remarkable for its age, the nose suggested unripe green fruits, stewed rhubarb, lemon bonbons, mint, golden syrup and Werther’s butterscotch. It reminded us of grappa, tequila, pear schnapps etc. The substantial palate delivered apple sours, lime fruit pastilles and red cola – a caustic/sweet combination so juicy it had us slavering like Boss Nass berating Jar Jar Binks. The reduced nose had apples sautéed in butter and raspberry jam pips – and woody, earthy, floral notes inspired the gardeners among us. The palate now had tart toffee apples and Key lime pie – very interesting indeed. The distillery was built by James Buchanan.
