Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Dried fruit, earth, smoke. Water brings out rubber and pipe tobacco (a rough shag this one).
Palate: Sweet and savoury at the same time with real charred tones all the way through.
Finish: Starts crisp, then comes dried fruit, then those charred/singed fruits and finally earth and smoke.
Comment: Huge! A machiatto to the Glen Grant espresso.
8.5
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Very woody. Leathery.
Palate: Slight toffee. Malty. Oily. Touches of mint, spiciness and hay. Quickly moving to woodiness.
Finish: Earthy, peaty, woody, drying.
Comment: Those flavours in mid-palate afford a glimpse of a delicious malt but the wood is very dominating.
