  3. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes: The nose delivered a conspicuous cornucopia of fruits – bushes laden with gooseberries and blackcurrants; pineapple, plums and mangoes, Key lime pie and sherbet lemons. The palate was fizzy, fresh, sharp and zesty – orange peel, ginger, tropical rum punch, Pimms and classic champagne cocktail. Water shifted the nose to a grassy place – early summer cricket grounds – spanking new smells of grass, wood and leather – little hints of clove and nutmeg also appeared. We found the reduced palate still vibrant and vivacious, sweet, sassy and cheek-pinching – juniper berries, gooseberry tart and grapefruit with glacé cherries – then slight leathery tannins and cardamom to finish.
