    TASTING NOTE by G&M;

    Colour: Golden butterscotch.

    WITHOUT WATER:

    Nose: Sweet and enticing - hints of candy canes, fresh and floral with hints of

    green leaves. Sweet fresh baked cake aromas and a defined exotic fruits

    nose.

    Palate: Delicate hint of smoke, some herbal influences - peppermint, with a

    ripe green apple edge. A hint of cracked black peppercorns emerges.

    WITH WATER:

    Nose: Delicate, floral and fragrant, the sweetness is constant and fruity

    influences become apparent. Hints of custard powder linger.

    Palate: Fresh with light herbal influences - fresh mint, some ripe summer fruits

    emerge - peaches and apricot. A subtle smoke lingers and a touch of

    nuts.

    Body: Medium.

    Finish: Long.

    Cask Type(s): 1st Fill American Hogshead

    Whisky Style: Elegant - complex, yet well balanced.
