Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Roast meats, a scented soap note develops, spring greens steaming, chocolated coated ginger, black pepper popcorn and red liquorice laces.
Palate: The sweetness is quickly replaced with a huge spice explosion, chilli chocolate, dark chocolate truffles, apple strudel (heavy on the Chantilly cream please).
Finish: Sweet and spicy, just keeps going.
Comment: Leaves the tastebuds bruised but wanting more.

Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Meaty, with gravy browning, some steamed green veg, bitter dark chocolate covered German gingerbread and black pepper. Blimey...
Palate: Sweet, but devilishly spicy, like an apple pie where someone over did the cinnamon and cloves. The dark chocolate bitterness returns and this is very bold complex and masculine
Finish: Tobacco leaf, more dark chocolate and spice round out a heavyweight whisky.
Comment: If this was a Bond movie, it would be Quantum Of Solace. Very manly, a little brutal in places but bloody difficult to understand.
