Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Toasty and sweet, ripe and juicy. Bread pudding, light treacle, dried fruit but there's still a grassy freshness along with oolong-like perfume.
Palate: Soft, generous and with a slow, unfolding quality. Ripe fruits. Rich and mouthfilling with light grip. Big and chewy, but balanced.
Finish: Gentle. Passion fruit juice.
Comment: A leap in quality above the rest on show here. Worth a trip to the still just to buy one.
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Malt, honey and citrus notes, freshly squeazed oranges and barley sugar.
Palate: Oily, mouth-coating, dry and attractively winey.
Finish: Long and drying, with liquorice and treacle.
Comment: Moreish!
