Tasting Notes

Nose
Distillery:  Honeysuckle, melon and marzipan with a spicy edge to add balance. Add water and a lush fruit attack appears with banana, forest flowers and a rich nutty character.
Taste
Distillery:  Richly honeyed and backed with a lifting zestiness which slides into spice and zingy salt. Once the dram opens out, vanilla and sultana stand out followed by notes of toasted oak.
Finish
Distillery:  A glorious combination of voluptuous Sauternes and snake-hippe Arran Malt - a richly rewarding partnership.
