Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Rich and broad shouldered, this whiskey gives buttered chicken, cajun spices and vanilla.
Palate: Spices are at the fore, with some hot buttered popcorn, salted caramel and spicy chorizo.
Finish: Popping candy, sour dough bread and cherry.
Comment: A really, really lovely whiskey which will work well as a sipper and in a cocktail.
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Aromatic and earthy with dark, toasted wheat flakes, liquorice, nut kernel and bran along with balsamic, sour fruit, treacle and dark wood notes. Astringent but a lovely vitality with late floral violets.
Palate: Herbal with dark wheat, treacle and bracing citrus notes which add freshness. Wood tannins arrive but are promptly succeeded by sweet herbs, sour fruit and a touch of camphor.
Finish: Long and moist, the oak vanillins add lightness to the sour fruit. Smoky, treacly finish.
Comment: Fantastically complex with the oak playing second fiddle to the spirit character.
