What a pleasant surprise, clean pasture and freshly plucked apples, refreshing as a clean floral note gently comes through with a green kiwi note. A subtle hint of oak in the background giving the dram another dimension.
Palate & Finish:
Immensely juicy and succulent, the green grapes and the orchard fruits combine well with the barley, the crisp sweetness gives way to a brush of charred oak. The combination of these light flavours achieve a good balance.
The crisp natural sweetness lingers as the dryness comes through, a touch of ginger flower with the underlying bed of barley providing a comfortable finish.
The chardonnay cask is really quite unique, it’s nice to see an old guard can still learn new tricks and surprise you in a fascinating manner. A delicious summer-time dram..
