Nose: Medium. Tangy citrus. Lemon marmalade. Pink grapefruit, verbena freshness.

I noticed on a recent visit to Gleneagles Hotel that they have a bottle of this behind the bar. Worth trying a glass - more for nostalgia than anything else. Be warned though - It's priced at £260 for a measure (50ml). Enjoy!
