Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Crêpe Suzette, blood orange and strawberry Angel Delight. Sweet and inviting.
Palate: Really well balanced flavours of malty goodness, milk chocolate, some popping candy and toffee. Slightly drying on the sweetness too. Feels well aged.
Finish: Yes, the oak on this is excellent, with lovely spices. Great blending.
Comment: Whatever this is, I’d like a bottle. A real star.
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Beautifully deep, gentle and mature with dusty vanilla oak, dried fruit and slightly mentholated herbs. Pretty malty with some developing Armagnac-esque raisin and plum.
Palate: Very classy, opening with dried sherried fruitcake mix and a good dollop of mature oak. A little grainy nip on the middle balances. Very mouth-filling with some rum-like dried fruit appearing.
Finish: Long and gently spiced with hints of cardamom, cinnamon and toasted oak.
Comment: Now, that’s an example of a fine blended whisky!
