    N: Another solid [Mannochmore-esque], oily-creamy barley spirit with figs, olives and lemonade-y vanilla-cream biscuits.
    T: Oozing block of olive-y sweet malt with a deep sour-cream core. Slow mover to a slightly sweeter barley malt.
    F: Olive lemonade - ha, i just noticed SMWS noted olive oil, so im not losing the plot just yet. Overall, a woody sour-lemon Speysider.
    C: Solidly matured barley spirit, by the end a bit duller than sparkling first impressions.Scores a B-

    SMWS tasting notes:

    Bright fresh elegant sweet aromas of ripe pears combined with a slight petrolic edge, so typical for Riesling wines, were soon followed by waxy vanilla scented candles, cinnamon baked apples and treacle tart served with vanilla ice cream. A dry spiciness of chilli powder surprised us all on the palate neat and kept us on our toes. When adding water a sweet earthy note appeared reminding some of going truffle hunting whilst others turned the soil over in a rose garden. To taste a complete transformation; deep sweet nutty aromas of honey roasted cashews and olive oil crackers with black pepper and herbs made this an irresistible experience.
