Issue 88
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Clean and fresh. Cooked mash, malted milk. Layers of sweet citrus,baked lemons.
Palate: That cooked mash note carries through but balanced with spices andthose baked lemons.
Finish: Dries with spices and a little smoke.
Comment: Definitely a gentleman but no lightweight dram.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Fat. Pork pie jelly then hazelnut and cold tea.
Palate: Another which is concentrated and sweet. Latte coffee, ripe fruits then a little grip from oak. Very glossy with a subtle hint of dried fruits.
Finish: Fig jam. Soft.
Comment: Maybe just a little too eager to please, but maybe I'm just too hard to please.
