Exceptionally fruity on the nose: poached pear with a drizzle of chocolate sauce, delicate vanilla, and freshly cut apple.
Dry-cut fruit to start, along with a distinctive nuttiness, in particular peanut. Warm, bready notes that are somewhat akin to white whisky.
Slightly spirituous with a closing sweetness, floral jasmine and almond.
A notably fragrant spirit with lots of fruit and floral flavours; the base comes through well, too. A good fit for an Aviation cocktail.
Grainy, like wholemeal bread, and a little oaky. Creamy and smooth with hints of liquorice, lemon and spearmint.
Floral, citrussy sweetness combines with more bready notes, with a firm juniper punch bringing up the rear. Hints of violets and pears.
t fades cleanly with an interplay of sweet grain and juniper.
The new-make spirit character in this is definitely a bit of me and makes me think it would lend itself well to a traditionally whiskey-based cocktail, such as a Julep.
