Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Dark and malty with hints of treacle, tar, dry, earthy peat and appears to be rich Pedro Ximinez sherry. Herbal with thyme, camphor and a slight medicinal / antiseptic note.
Palate: Full, treacly and malty with dry, earthy peat, salt and fragrant fruit. Lovely depth with harmonious blending of American oak and sherry oak. Silky but edgy with developing salt and oils.
Finish: Long, chewy and slightly mentholated with lingering treacle, malt and peat.
Comment: If from the distillery I think this is from, then it has seriously upped it’s game.
9.1
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: The malt sits at the forefront of this well made whisky, with copper, cherry jam and lanolin in the mix too. Smooth and subtle.
Palate: A little raw on the palate, compared to the balance of the nose, with some vanilla, under ripe banana, chilli spices and green veg. Blood orange also apparent.
Finish: Pine nuts and cherry lips.
Comment: Started off well but faded away a little on the palate.
