Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: High toned, triple distilled-esque aromas rise above a thick, oily, barley core. Hints of Turkish Delight and rose water seem to reinforce its almost Lowland-like character. Gently spiced with black pepper, cumin and creamy vanilla.
Palate: Young and creamy with the toffeed oak up first followed by sugar sprinkled barley, herbs and olive oil coated banana. Quite weighty with some gentle spices and citrus.
Finish: Fairly austere and mineral, although the oils try to balance. Light rose water aftertaste.
Comment: A Highland malt for Auchentoshan lovers!
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: A spirited nose gives alpine forest floor, lily of the valley and weak clear apple juice.
Palate: A very sweet palate has elements of toasted marshmallow, crushed almonds and a hint of green grass.
Finish: Light, slightly earthy, delicate.
Comment: This is a very light product, erring a little too much on the side of sunflower oil. Not quite enough body or depth, but a very easy drink.
