The Panel found this mellow initially. Thick honey, vanilla and citrus was found on the nose eventually turning to grassy notes like straw, hay and even compost heap. The fiery palate had a white pepper taste with hints of vanilla and a medium length nippy citrus finish. There was a developing sweetness on the nose with water - cooking butter, toffee and light fruit. The reduced palate is full and delicious and, whilst still a bit nippy, it has a sweet and creamy palate with a lingering finish. Light and pleasant, and from the only surviving distillery in Dumfries and Galloway.
