Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Rich and round with distinct coffee accents. Lots of ripe dark fruits, plum and raisin, a hint of soft leather/cobbler's workshop.
Palate: Thick and smooth with a very pure note in the centre and lift of lime. Black cherry and toffee. Rounded and chewy, with a cough of smoke.
Finish: Lighter than you expect. Very clean and spicy.
Comment: A bigger Cutty than you might expect but the purity of character links it to the family. Weel (sic) done!
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Deep, dark, concentrated. Obviously sherried. Cherries in marasquino. Dark chocolate. Walnuts and dates. Earthy.
Palate: Sweet at first then a sour grip dries the palate. Oak is obviously leading the dance but in a harmonious 'pas de deux' with spices. Candied ginger and nutmeg.
Finish: Long, dry, spicy.
Comment: Oaky, elegant, rich.
