Tasting Notes:

Colour: Bright gold

On the nose: Lively. Fresh lemons get right in your face, then ease off a bit to let cereal, grain and malt notes through. Light honey and minerality sit alongside each other. More citrus enters the mix – grapefruit and blood oranges. Light floral aromas dance in and out, never staying long, with hints of more fruit (apple and pear this time) and, almost as an afterthought, the scent of soft smoke.

In the mouth: The citrus flavours hit first – lemon peel that softens into lemon. A light bit of smoke works its way throughout the dram – again, a soft kind of peat, which settles nicely, so it works. That smoke encourages a nice bit of meatiness to shine through – Wiltshire cured ham. The minerality from the nose arrives and the orchard fruits eventually emerge to add a bit of balanced sweetness to the meaty and grainy flavours. The citrus bursts through from time to time alongside vanilla and some popping candy. There is a nice level of spice throughout that leads nicely into the long finish that lasts in the mouth. Complemented by the oak and malt flavours, you get a nice balance to allow you to appreciate this as long as possible.
