    On the nose I first thought that his would go totally green and grassy but on the palate it is really fruity and balanced with quite some punch - really good!

      Green house, green gruits, leafy, little grassy, vanilla, honeydew, little spices, candy, star fruit, green apple, lime, hints of vegebtables, whiffs of flowers - not bad

    ose: Imagine yourself lying in a spring meadow, sniffing the flower blossom and fresh grass. This is it in a nutshell : very gentle, floral, perfumed, icing sugar, fresh cut grass, and old school boiled fruit, white chocolate filled with strawberries and whipped cream. Like sniffing an April field in blossom.

    Palate: much bigger than the light and floral nose, the alcohol bite is there, then we’re off to sweeter realms: white chocolate, apple peel, pear drops, wood tannins, and spices mainly nutmeg and wood bark, barley sugar and fresh baked brioche,honey.

    Finish: floral and fruity, with more pear drops, a wee hint of unripe banana, coconut and a leafy touch .

    Conclusion: This is a lovely whisky, so gentle and so complex. The nose is extra delicate, just like a spring meadow. The palate is a bit more robust, but also is classy and complex with the fruit and chocolate, so well integrated. Lovely stuff for a hefty price.
