Ed's review

Colour: Natural colour, golden straw. Lots of parallel legs run down the side of my glass.

Nose: Golden syrup, orchard fruits, and cream. Buttery vanilla sponge fresh from the oven and drizzled in honey. Light oak and gentle spice provide structure. Alcohol is well integrated.

Palate: Medium mouthfeel. A beautiful, soft sweetness. Green apples and sweet pears. Almond madeleines and fresh vanilla cream. Alcohol is very well integrated, adding body without burn.

Finish: Medium to long finish. Bright, fruity and clean. Pear drop sweets, orchard fruits.

Overall: Another delicious whisky from Woody. I love the sweet orchard fruits in this dram, they are beautifully refined and balanced. A sophisticated but welcoming whisky.
