Show rating data charts
Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: An immediately nimble nose, with wet straw and lavender like two ballerinas leaping across the stage. The rest of the company is not far behind, lime and cucumber pirouetting around some light yoghurt and hummus, with cauliflower, apple and melon wafting in on a bed of light butter and honey. The stage is elegantly decorated with flowers and fresh herbs. Sumptuously subtle.
Taste: The next act of the ballet comes in with a very light and delicate dance, with seemingly weightless movement from the fresh apple and citrus, once again swooning on a honey-coated stage, with violet and toffee accompanying the compellingly minimal choreography.
Finish: Act 3 is once again played out on the ever-present honey-coated surface, from which springs sweet mint and herbs, a brief leap of liquorice, before the flapjacks and malted straw close the show.
Balance: The beauty of this dram is in its elegant simplicity. Its name is in fact rather apt, as it is more like a bunch of roses rather than a bouquet of assorted flowers. Its flavour profile is very precise and almost minimalist, but effortlessly luxurious, just like the rose itself. The triple distillation has certainly refined the character of this spirit, and created a beautifully light and sophisticated dram.
