We found a very interesting nose with lots going on – plum jam, peach, apricot, rose-hip syrup, cinnamon toast, honey, toffee, almond, celery leaf and fresh oak. The palate started with crisp greengage freshness, before turning to pomegranates and red toffee apples, closing with dried figs and dates, mild spice and granola cereal notes. Water deepened the nose impressions – Danish pastries, Special K with dried strawberries, rose pot-pourri, sauna wood, hay, leather and cigar boxes. The reduced palate boasted fruit baskets, tingling ginger spice, tobacco, toffee and dark chocolate with cherry pieces. The distillery is operated by Berry Bros and Rudd.
