Our Tasting Notes:
Nose: Apple turnovers and fresh barley along with some sweet sugary bits that you get at the bottom of a bag of pick and mix. Some liquorice and marzipan here too with some floral honey and a touch of aromatic herbs.
Palate: Quite dry and austere to begin with water bringing out some iced danish and sugared almonds. Lemon barley squash and a prosecco like fizz emerge along with vanilla oak, dark chocolate and ginger spice note.
Finish: Wine gums, marzipan and dark chocolate. Green apple dusted with vanilla icing sugar, barley sugar sweets and pineapple chunks.
Prosecco in a barley field, a spritzy Speyside malt that really comes alive with a drop of water.
