    CASK No. 70.23
    Light & delicate
    Relaxing, chill-out whisky
    Price £57.50 On the nose, there’s a sweet balmy breeze – someone is mowing a flower meadow – scents of apple, other orchard fruits and honeydew melon – slowly it finds sharper plum tart and blackcurrant aromas. The taste is a delight – douce and delicate, it has gummi bear sweetness balanced by acidity (tangerine, Moffat toffees, lemon sherbet); a mild chilli chauffage of the gums to finish. The reduced nose is somewhere between walking into a confectioner’s shop and a bouquet of flowers – really relaxing, chill-out whisky. The palate now has fruit tea, lemon polenta cake and resonances of candied caraway, Campari and pink peppercorns.
