Description

The delicate and subtle profile of this dram was immediately apparent upon first nosing. We found no single dominant aroma but rather a range of lovely notes including pineapple tarts, sea buckthorn, cloudy lemonade, freshly laundered linens, lemon cough drops and heather flowers. With water came quince jelly, cider apple, gooseberry, white flowers, lemon oil and bog cotton. The palate opened with a refreshing citrus zing, then notes of quinine, nettles, parsley, gorse flower and lots of white stone fruits, plus a pang of green apple acidity and white pepper. Reduction brought lovely flavours of aniseed, fennel, dried seaweed, guava and kiwi with a dusting of pollen.
