    Fruity nose, somehow. It continues fruity, although I have to get used to the alcohol first. Something like fruit salad. Pineapple, mango, red apples, a few sweet grapes. Oily. After a few minutes there will also be some wood left. The finish is then again very mild.
    In the second sip, again a lot of delicious fruit salad but the oak comes out stronger. Great malt!

    SPIRIT NOTES

    A juicy burst of toasted pineapple, squished lemons and orange peel gave an uplifting zip on the nose that sweetened as pink marshmallows joined vanilla pods in banana bread. The fruity sweetness followed onto the palate with an effervescent energy that became balanced by a touch of bitter grape skin and a pinch of spice. With water the citrusy fruits had become lemon meringue pie with white chocolate and a drizzle of caramel. Apples and oranges joined dried papaya while on the palate we found ginger and cinnamon on white icing with a touch of marzipan and tart plums before herbal tea appeared on the finish.

    Available as part of
    SANTA’S SWEETS PAIR (£109)

    This magical duo is delivered by Santa himself. Sliding down the chimney with a large sack of sweet treats –Turkish delight, juicy fruit jellies, pink marshmallows, white chocolate and caramel – covered in a thin cloud of smoke.
