Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Intense and grainy with plenty of coffeed oak, dried fruit, thyme, cocoa, gorse and heather. Deep with luscious light honey.
Palate: Opens with the soft, toffeed and cocoa laced oak. Hints of grainy spirit and dried fruit followed with coffee. Gently honeyed but the emphasis is definitely on the grainy character.
Finish: Medium length with the oak dampening the vitality and leaving the finish quite oily.
Comment: A grain whisky perhaps? The palate doesn’t display the complexity of the nose due to the encroaching oak, but it’s pleasant enough.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Malty with an obvious citrussy note. Orange and tangerine concentrate. More like a liquor.
Palate: Sweet and watery. The same liquor-like profile as on the nose. A slight nutty note in the back.
Finish: Drying, with a bit of spice. Ginger and nutmeg.
Comment: This is very sweet on the nose.
