Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Reminiscent of a fire just dampened down, bonfire night. Treacle toffee and cinder toffee sweets. Some poached fruits, vanilla ice cream with toffee syrup.
Palate: Very syrupy with bags of toffee sweetness. Oak vanillin and a creamy note are present.
Finish: Crisp with a little bitterness.
Comment: Takes its time to reveal its depths, but they are there.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Oaky. Logfire. Dry wood. Opening on sweeter notes. Toffee apple. Mint chocolate. Pears in syrup. Restrained at first but unwinds in time.
Palate: Dry at first but with a velvety texture. Oak is definitely the leader but there is much more. Toffee again.
Finish: Dry and slightly astringent.
Comment: Give time to this whisky but avoid water which enhances the alcohol feel. There is some austerity in the character but it does open up with a bit of patience.
