Nose: Incredibly fresh, floral notes of orange blossom and honeysuckle, with dried orange peel and woody spices.
Palate: Light, fresh, floral, citrus. Hot spicy note from the alcohol. Honeyed, syrupy, orange barley sugar, with an earthy, grassy backnote. Adding water really opens up the flavours, showing off the sweetness, oakiness and a fabulous tropical fruit note: hints of mango and banana.
Finish: Huge lingering, harmonious tropical fruit finish.
Conclusion: Fresh, elegant and well-balanced. With water it becomes something different – more delicate and ‘silky’. This is a very sophisticated dram.
