Initially very grassy on the nose ….
Not freshly cut but old, dried grass, rushes and straw followed by deep, mature orange and lime with hints of honey and caramel. Lovely and rounded with a slight barley note.
Dry, gentle and mellow on the palate, the flavours reflect the nose. Its quite oily and the alcohol dominates somewhat. A drop of water subdues the alcohol and allows the juicy, delicious fruit to show.
Excellent intensity and length with a touch of earth and gin like botanicals. Definitely and old lady!
