Nose: All fresh and inviting candy store pick and mix counter with vanilla, coconut, lemon bon bons, hints of thyme, runny honey, pancakes on the griddle, freshly baked shortbread and sugared almonds.

Palate: Pear tart, vanilla wafers, nice biscuits, apple crumble, custard powder, some herbal and oily notes at the core with a very fresh and grassy mouthfeel, more canndy shop fizzy spice and green fig.

Finish: Coconut fudge, vanilla waffles, pear drops, lemon thyme, sherbet dip, very fresh and zingy, almost prosecco like fizz along with sponge cake and freshly baked biscuits.

An afternoon tea in the garden of a blend, simplistic in its use of just two whiskies but far from being simplistic in taste. A lovely summery Bourbon cask aged offering from the ever reliable Compass Box.

The original release of this featured in the 1001 whiskies you must try before you die book
