Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Pine sap, aromatic woods, beech nut. In time a sweeter note of kumquat, then pan drop/minty sweets. Oak driven, but sweetly so.
Palate: Slightly thin after such an impressive nose. Plenty of wood and a touch of créme brûlée.
Finish: Soft, pillow-like.
Comment: A bit of a let down after such a great nose. A very pretty whisky but higher alcohol might have given it better impact in the mouth.
7.5
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Satsuma segments, nail polish, apricot cream and papaya. Then a doughy, pumice-like element, that borders on soapy.
Palate: Sweet, with vanilla and almonds and a lightly bitter oakiness.
Finish: Pretty short, but a delicate US oakiness.
Comment: A pretty nose but fairly uneventful on the palate. Pleasant.
