Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Lots of Dundee (thick-cut) marmalade mixed with gold syrup, coconut andwood shavings. Water takes it into nougat territory along with a littletreacle, apple and malt loaf.
Palate: As nose, with some peach, jasmine to start before it deepens into lilac, nutand raisin.
Finish: Spicy and clean.
Comment: Good, just lacking the extra layers which produce complexity.
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Chinese takeaway wrapper. Stewed vegetables. With time cocoa andbiscuit notes.
Palate: Definitely up a notch or two from the nose. Tinned fruits in syrup. Sweetand full with soft pear and a dusting of spice.
Finish: Quite long and definitely pleasant. A whisky which grows as it goes.
Comment: Not spectacular but a solid and enjoyable malt and a pleasantambassador for a distillery which rarely gets the limelight.
