Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Wow, the smoke on this sits perfectly with the summer fruits and stone fruits. Apple develops on the nose, wrapped in fantastically velvety smoke. Age, certainly. Tiredness, none.
Palate: Sweetness on the front of the palate, oak spices in the middle and a waft of smoke at the back. This is like pre-war mainland whisky making.
Finish: Perfectly dry and smoky. A day longer in the cask, and it’d be a different story.
Comment: Just fantastic. Smoke, heather and fruits combine to produce pre-?war style product.

Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Tart citrus and lovely sawdusty American oak. Lusciously honeyed with hints of gooseberry, lime and soft spice. Stunning depth.
Palate: Crisp, mineral with white fruit, barley, lime and hyacinth. Lusciously honeyed and creamy with sawdusty, mature oak. Superbly balanced.
Finish: Long, citric and mouth-wateringly mineral with subtle Cognac-esque dried fruit notes.
Comment: A classic American oak aged, mature Highland Malt.
