Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Subtle. Nutty. Almonds.
Palate: Light-bodied for this distillery. Firm, smooth, almost slippery. Lots of flavour development. Sweet then fragrantly smoky.
Finish: Rounded. Appetising.
Comment: Very urbane.

Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: A weighty nose with a depth of honey where there had once been fruit. Perplexing coastal feel for something distilled 1,000 miles inland!
Palate: Lighter bodied than the 12, with a more simplistic oakiness. Honey and rye cling together.
Finish: Toasty with a residual rye oiliness and a soft vanilla sweetness.
Comment: A solid and charming bourbon.
