If you thought that vodka was a plain, tasteless spirit then think again. The nose opens with a gentle, sweet yet slightly tart fruit note. Think 1970's pear drops. Hints of butter biscuit.

The palate is similar to the nose but with more citrus notes being added. Light banana and clementine, from the long fermentation period of the barley, come through. Also hints of toffee and butterscotch, i would argue from its initial distillation in copper pot stills.

The finish is pure pear drops and butterscotch. Malt quality, reminiscent of new make spirit comes in right at the end.
