Notes

We were intrigued by the sharp and sweet citrus notes, "Like homemade limoncello" suggested one panellist. "Lemon drizzle cake with lemon icing" said another. "Lemon meringue pie" insisted a third. With the theme well established we delved deeper to find herbal notes of lemon verbena and lemon thyme. Lemon and honey lozenges, hot toddy, and the effervescence of cloudy lemonade. The first sip represented a change of gear into melon, then mango and up to pineapple custard slices. We thought, perhaps, that the custard had hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. Far from being one dimensional, this whisky is the perfect composition of theme and variation.
