At full strength, heady, nose prickle, pear drops and tightly integrated heather, resin and sweet honey-nut notes. Enticing. Intriguing. With a little water, still harmonious but less pronounced, allowing some malt-cereal, soft, spicy wood, moorland and faint traces of wood-smoke to appear.
Soft, pleasing, medium.
Palate Well balanced, smooth mouthfeel; short punch, sweet and fresh, then a pronounced drying effect. Enjoyable at any time, with little or no water.
Quite short. Some lingering sweet smoke in the attractive, drying aftertaste.
Spirity nose with sweet apple blossom and heathery aromas. Well-balanced palate with a warming, dryish finish.
