Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Wonderfully fragrant with waxy notes, linseed oil, nut shells, some earthiness/wet leaves, freshly rolled cigars and a touch of incense.
Palate: Laden with peppery richness; beautifully integrated oak, dark chocolate, dried fruit - but on top, a floral waxiness, that only comes with age and true maturity.
Finish: A toss up between herbal butter, milk chocolate, chopped nuts and wax.
Comment: Whisky of the month, by a slender margin. This is refined and just the right age. A good eye (and palate) put this beauty together.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fruity. Citrussy. Juicy lemon. Sweet vanilla; lovely creaminess. Fresh and lively. Victoria plums. Lemon biscuits.
Palate: Creamy. Satin-like at first then getting crisp like raw silk. The same fruity profile as on the nose. Citrus fruit salad and also crystallised ginger.
Finish: Dry, spicy, citrusy.
Comment: A lovely dram. The perfect summer uplifting drink to share with friends.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Citrussy. Grapefruit juice. Then a pleasant display of exotic fruit. Passionfruit, mango, touch of lime. A fruity character. Flowering currant.
Palate: Crisp and dry. The exotic fruit burst out. enhanced by a ginger kick.
Finish: Lingering. Still exotic. With a nutty aftertaste.
Comment: Reminds of an Irish whiskey! So much exotic fruit and flowering currant. A big character. Not on the sweet side. Which is not a defect.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Full of orange zest and ripe soft fruits. Then pine sap and cedar slowly emerge, but fruit is the main element.
Palate: Sweet for a moment then bags of fruit, passion fruit, mango and ginger. Ahoney element too.
Finish: Long and subtle.
Comment: Almost a savoury whisky but I reckon would go well with dessert,especially Kumquats.
