Suspicious skulkers on the catwalk

sold out

The nose was more delicate than usual – suspicions of shoe polish, fresh photocopies and old books skulked among the catwalk models strutting their sweet barley and citric juiciness (green Starburst, lemon bonbons, orange matchmakers, marmalade, lime zest). Citric variations were also evident in the zesty, tingling palate (lemon, lime, cooking apple) – balanced by honeyed sweetness but with flower stems, smoke and embers at the back. The reduced nose – peeled twigs, waxed paper (Starburst again), cherries, toffee, manuka and raspberry sauce on ice-cream. The palate now found red liquorice and sugar-coated fennel seeds. A distillery apparently haunted by its founder’s ghost.
