Notes from the producers... Nose: When you raise your nose into a glass of our Single Malt Whisky, that highlights the famous bold spirit style against the signature lemon, apple, stone fruit, white florals and bees wax aromas, slightly savoury back drop of sweet fruit, made up from plum jam, red grapes, orange marmalade and more berries, honey suckle and floral notes, shrouded by slightly earthy tones and a small amount of spice, perfectly compliment the cleanliness of the double distilled spirit. Allowing the spirit to sit and breathe before you indulge into your first sip. Palate: In order to maximise your palate, hold the first sip in your mouth, then you will really appreciate on the next sip, look out for sweet, white florals and Suttle Semillon and Tawny tones with a full body. After the taste comes the finish & the length. This is the after taste that follows well after you’ve swallowed. Pairing: with a variety of dishes seared scallops, shrimp and other richer seafood dishes work beautifully.
