    Invigorating and refreshing, with a vivid character, perfectly balanced, snappy, positive mole from Springbank.
    • Nose
      Fresh, invigorating, mineral, brackish, dried seaweed, citrus - lemon, orange, flower tones, apple-pear jam, wood, stain, boiled condensed milk, cream, confectionery notes - shortbread, sugar glaze;
    • Taste
      Wave of pepper, lemon syrup, lemon, orange, tangerines, oak bitterness, everything beats with a fountain and sparks - fireworks of taste.
    • Finish
      Orange peel with pepper, cream of whipped cream, young bark, a little wormwood, lemon in unsweetened tea, light oiliness.

      Long finish, nutty, oak,

    Blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Oily, honey, fruity, some wax, floral, eggnog, some nuts and with a 'dirty edge'
      .
    • Taste
      Fruity - apple, malty - cereals, coconut, citrus and a trace of sulpher. 
    • Finish
      Acid like a hoppy IPA beer, ointment, pepper and a whiff of smoke.
