Beautifully expressive and rich with distillery character. Lots of salty bubblegum, lemon jelly, gooseberry, elderflower, sandalwood, perfumed seaweed and gorse. With water there’s cheesecake, mineral oils, chalky marshmallow, lime juice and a big, luxurious and easy, sweet fruitiness. The palate begins with honeydew melon, fruity waxes, juicy fruit chewing gum, jelly babies, pineapple chunks and mango scented bath salts. Dilution offers up vanilla custard with quince jelly, softmints, strawberry liquorice, lime cordial, aged Gewurtztraminer, lychee syrup and rosewater. The finish moves towards boot polish, camphor and salty wax.
