Tasting Notes

"Pronounced aromas of lemon zest and floral notes (violets), as well as elderflower. There’s room for orchard fruits too, mainly thick slices of ripe apple. The palate reveals a fruity, old-style whisky with a decent mouthfeel. Lemon, grapefruit, oranges, but also mango and a distinct maltiness. High-quality and very agreeable."
