ABV: 12%
Closure: Stelvin

Brilliant very pale straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. On the nose lifted lime and citrus scents mix with oily toast like notes, kerosene and spicy lemon butter. Light in weight with a brisk feel, lemon and lime flavours are to the fore trailed by oily toast and steely kerosene like characters. Finishes dry with crisp acidity, the aftertaste driven by a tertiary flavour profile and oily texture.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.

Other Reviews….
It just has that little something extra this year. It's its usual floral self, underwritten by citrus juice and rind, a kind of chalkiness at play through the finish. Sheer intensity of flavour though, from the outset, is it really excels. Drink by 2025.
