Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Peach melba, raspberries and whipped cream. Tinned stone fruits and a hint of grappa give this a vibrant nose to add life to the fruity notes.
Palate: Sweet cherries dipped in white chocolate. Angel cakes and tropical fruit juice. Really well balanced with excellent flavours that don’t shout too loudly.
Finish: The tropical fruits are given an extra layer of earthy spices in the finish, suggesting well matured liquid.
Comment: This could be the most perfect dessert whisky; pour in place of a sweet wine.
9.0
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Opens with very creamy toffee / coffee, followed by herbal barley, acacia honey and hints of dried fruit – prunes in light syrup. Lovely depth with late hints of earth and wood smoke.
Palate: Again opening with the creamy toffee / coffee and a little sweetish wood spice. Very elegant with plenty of dried fruit and minerals on the middle.
Finish: Long and gently herbal with a lovely, slightly mouth-watering, citrus and a smidgen of drier spices.
Comment: Evocative and succulent. A beautifully balanced refill sherry matured dram.
