Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Massive fruit onslaught: apples and oranges and well structured sweetness. The grain lightens the proceedings.
Palate: Big and boisterous and enormously sweet from the start. Rich maltiness, a slight smokiness and an almost metallic honey sheen.
Finish: Drier with some cocoa. Quite gristy.
Comment: Perhaps the most improved blend in the Cooley range. A massive assertiveness throughout.
8.0

Palate: Spearmint, oily, smooth. Becoming sweet. Mint-toffee. Nicely rounded
