Tasting Notes

"Some nectarine, tinned pineapple and coconut water on the nose. A whiff of honey too, but also sweet pastries and warming spices. Barely noticeable on the nose, the grapefruit shines on the palate. There’s lemon zest, honey and an assortment of spices as well. The sweetness is kept in check. A lovely, bright single malt."
