The nose has mango, watermelon, lemon and a fresh grassy note. The mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has lime, toffee, salted caramels and hints of fruit salad sweets. The finish is short - toffee and mango.
Water brings out thin, rapidly spreading whorling that settles into lingering mottling. The nose gains ginger and a hint of orange. The body gains some lemon and loses the salted caramels. The finish gains lemon.
A superb dram for summer evenings.
