    Fruity and floral on the nose with apple blossom and tropical fruits, pine apple and papaya in particular. Some sweet notes with vanilla and honey. 

    A light texture on the palate, fresh and fruity arrival with golden delicious apples at the front. Some sharp notes reminding me of fabrics softener appear. It becomes sweeter with water bringing vanilla custard and liquid honey forward while removing the softener. 

    The finish is medium in length with lemon, bitter citrus and sour apples. Maybe even some lemon tea in here.I totally love how the sweet and sour arrival transform to a more sour and bitter finish. Although this is much more pronounced undiluted the whisky improves a lot with a few tea spoons of water.

    N: Honey and rosewater at first leading to fragranced hessian=popcorn and a strong floral fragrance>sweet-shop. Really very delightful. A little pineapple [Foz]. Water/time doesnt change the profile, yet it mellows like one would on a still & warm sunny day.
    T: Works neat but wants a few drops. Impeccable arrival and subsequent travel. Oozes its oily dry-creamy savoury-sweetness into the finish.
    F: And theres much more besides. 
    C: In short, a fabulous GG that works equally as well as an easy & enjoyable daily dram or a sipper for a more contemplative mood.Scores a B

    SMWS tasting note:

    Like walking through a springtime garden, we enjoyed the sweet wood of freshly sawn trees. Lychee, strawberry and Turkish delight merged with soft lemon, pineapple and orange marmalade for a fruity paradise. The fragrant waft of heavy incense became prominent and lead into a playful heat with ginger, cherry brandy and liquorice. A beeswax texture mingled with leather and tobacco but also the intense sweetness of vanilla ice cream with marshmallows, toffee and fudge. More woody notes came through on the finish with scented sandalwood and a rich, juicy twang of malt loaf with candied peel.
