Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: No shyness to the firm, extra-clean grain, but the malt does balance things out beautifully. The fruit has receded in recent years but there are still hints of apple and grape.
Palate: Fabulously lush, honeyed and delicately malted. The grain adds complexity.
Finish: Still lush, moderately sweet, slightly grapey. The early spices vanish and leave some oak and a grainy firmness.
Comment: A satisfying, finely balanced dram which again shows Cooley's decent grain to good effect.
7.0
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Lemongrass. Lime.
Palate: Medium. Smooth. Sweetish, very toasty, malt character. Well-balanced.
Finish: Nice balancing dryness. Leafy.
Comment: Light but firm and satisfying. A welcome newcomer for everyday drinking.
