Taster   Peter Mulryan
Nose: A gentle caress of apricots and carbolic soap.
Palate: That firm, linseed crackle of pot still whiskey, the edges rounded by sultanas.
Finish: Mince pies then a farewell buzz from the unmalted barley.
Comment: Even after 18 years, the pot still refuses to be mastered by the wood. Very drinkable.
8.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Rich fruit and nut. Good weight with positive (resinous) oak notes. Linseed oil, black butter, moss, dried apricot and honey, toffee apple. Mature.
Palate: Rolls around the mouth, becoming intensely exotic. Dried peels, peach, honey, Turkish Delight. Nutty grip, fruit cake, bitter chocolate and cream.
Finish: Firm, oak.
Comment: Seems drier than I remember but still well balanced.
