    This is a beautifully subtle, delicate dram. Perhaps not for everyone, but take a step back and instead of actively searching for what’s there, just let it happen as it will open up nicely.
    • Nose
      spirit, lemon/citrus note with an almost subdued orange zest and cereal, leaning towards jaffa cakes. It was so subtle and closed I added a drop of water, which brought out a fresh sour note, with again orange and lemon peel, clean and fresh, like what you would call a bit of a ‘spring’ note.
    • Taste
      creamy mouthfeel, slightly solvent (something I often pick up in Tomintoul) and all still very much closed and subdued. The water opened things up: the mouthfeel turns really oily now and the wine cask reveals its impact along with a slight herbal note.
    • Finish
      dry, medium long, herbal, a faint grassy note with the white grapes in the back.

    • Nose
      It's light and citric, with notes of Greek yoghurt and lemon zest catching my attention. A whisper of cookie dough too, as well as honey and a touch of star anise. Finally some lovely sweet stone fruits. Gentle and enticing.
    • Taste
      A creamy mouthfeel and rather spicy at first (white pepper mainly). Also somewhat herbal, but quickly followed by soft red fruits as well as a touch of vibrant lemon zest and Port stewed pears. Finally a whiff of honey.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices and a touch dry. More of the above.

    Sampled tonight at the Good Spirits Co. virtual tasting.

    This one was a pleasant surprise, very spirit-driven.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Unusual, quite new-makey, but pleasantly so.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Slightly feinty, fizzy, sweet high notes, sense of quality icing.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Quite long, sweet again, chalky at the death.
