Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Light peat smoke gives a perfume to a sweet nose: tablet, demerara sugar, dried fruits (mango as well as grape). Water makes it more phenolic.
Palate: Hot with sweet treacle, black banana, raisin, firm oak and that delicate smoke. Very sweet and honeyed.
Finish: Gentle, long. Good balance.
Comment: Balanced, as whiskies of this age should be but just too sweet for this palate.
7.8
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fresh saw. Pine resin. Nutty. Hazelnut milk chocolate. A mineral touch. Wet pebble.
Palate: Mild and round. Vanilla toffee, with a distinct bitter oakiness.
Finish: Medium, salty feel, nutty.
Comment: Oak is present all the way. A bit dull. Lacks vividness.
