A sharp and vibrant nose initially, showing plenty of tart green apples, finger limes, chalk dust and torn mint leaves. Also hints of dried rosemary, peach syrup and some cracked black pepper. Punchy, fresh and vibrant. With water we found lemon drizzled sponge cake, runny honey, lime cordial and melted brown sugar. The palate opened with a silky texture and the flavour of soft mints, zinging citric acidity, white grape and softer notes of cinnamon bark and sandalwood. After reduction, we found a fattier and chewier dram, heightened in texture and with notes of dark cocoa, cake batter, honeydew melons and a big, warming undercurrent of spice.
