The nose is very sweet - honey, toffee, mango, lemon sorbet, and hints of Turkish Delight. The mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has mango lemon sorbet pineapple juice and freshly sawn oak. The finish is short - lemon sorbet and toffee.
Water brings out thin, rapidly expanding whorling that settles quickly into brief mottling. The nose gains oak notes, and the Turkish Delight is more prominent. The body gains Turkish Delight, and a little cinnamon. The finish also gains cinnamon.
A delightful whisky for lunch on hot summer's days.
