View on SMWS

Nose: Lemon peels, grapes and gooseberries alongside textural/fabric elements – waxes, oils, greases, waxed jackets, leather coats and clean cotton sheets. In the background, green apples, barley water and bread pudding. Reduction adds brightness and pep from crisp Chablis wine, fresh white grapes and balled melon, whilst also emphasising floral elements –buttercups and sunflowers.

Taste: A soft arrival, but with plenty of natural weight from oils and wax.  White fruits – melon and grape sit with cream-filled buns, custard cream biscuits, crème brulee and toasted bread. Water adds additional creaminess – Chantilly and cream cheese – alongside fabrics – sack cloth and cotton sheets.

Finish: Medium with lemon and lime cream, coconut and dry oakiness.

A crisp and clean Miltonduff that nicely combines fruits and fabrics whilst maintaining a good weight and texture throughout. I likes it.

Score: 85/100
