Colour: Moonlight in Lothlorien
A gentle, unassuming nose – slight suggestions of scorched wood and small insinuations of acidity – but mainly a sweetie shop (vanilla, Turkish Delight, strawberry fondant) in a park (meadowsweet, laurel, gorse, wood sap, flowers). The palate held a happy balance of sweet (chocolate-coated raisins, iced vanilla sponge-cake) and bitter (lemon, lime, pear, damson); pleasant pepper, wood and salty liquorice warmed the mouth. The reduced nose was fresher and fruitier – sherbet lemons, elderflower and lime cordial, cranberries, pineapple and pine. The palate became easy-drinking, lip-smacking and moreish – apple chews, refreshers and lime zest; ginger snaps and liquorice to finish. Named after the Lossie.
Drinking Tip: Any time whisky – better with a splash of water – refreshing and up-lifting
