Fresher and more citric than the brilliance with fresh barley, tropical white fruit, melon, lime, gooseberry and crunchy barley. Like the brilliance there is a subtle rye-like herbal spice note and balanced fresh, toasty, nutty oak. Lovely intensity and saltiness.

The palate is a littler fuller and maltier but still pleasantly citric and tropical with crunchy barley and hints of honey, vanilla, bitter spice and salt. A little masked and mouth-watering with lingering salt, citrus, toasty oak and a subtle coffee’d after-taste.

With water the nose is still wonderfully fresh with hints of violets and chocolate biscuits now. The barley is more fragrant and there’s a little more noticeable nutty oak with a late vanilla ice-cream note. The palate is similar to it is neat with a touch more salt and a little less bitter spice. Lovely mouth-fell and gentle oiliness. Long, barley and fresh tropical fruit finish with a salty flourish at the end!
