Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Buttery popcorn, rye bread, warm olive oil. A slight gorse and bracken note,earthy. There are some sweet herbal notes too.
Palate: Those sweet herbal and woodland notes come through. The oak grips alittle with vanilla and orange sherbert tones coming through.
Finish: Long and lingering, a touch fizzy.
Comment: Another release from a distillery finding its golden seam.
8.5
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Glacé cherries, chewy nougat, honey comb, ripe nectarine, waxy honey,Toblerone and wet suede leather.
Palate: A superb mouthfeel, with sweet, nutty undertones, a coating of runny honey,creamy, salted caramel and a tiny hint of Buttercup Syrup. Moreish and hardto put your finger on where it will head next.
Finish: Blackcurrant cordial and a lingering nuttiness rounds out the palate as it dries.
Comment: Quite a complex beast, that's difficult to pin down, but all the better for it.
