Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Another bold sweet nose with a gentle whiff of smoke.A solid chocolate orange and slight flinty,almost bloodlike edge to it.
Palate: Has a dense quality to it. Vanilla and sawdust follow accompanied by this gentle smoke waft.
Finish: Cooked oranges with a malt hint.
Comment: A blended malt with a very sweet heart,for those who like it that way.
