Good pale color. Spicy, perfumed, slightly high-toned aromas of ripe citrus fruits and mint. Concentrated and bracing in the mouth, with penetrating acidity and a distinct lemony flavor. Sharply focused, graceful and extremely youthful. Very long, subtle aftertaste features terrific grip. Finishes with notes of spicy oak and butterscotch. Today the above sample seems more dominated by the wood.
Very bright Lucozade colour. Very timid nose – too much sulphur? Then neat and fresh and with real fruit core in the middle. Not that sweet – good balance. Still quite youthful. Shame it’s so inexpressive on the nose.
