Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Sweet. Demerara sugar. Grassy.Fennel. Vanilla syrup. Like a distant rum note.
Palate: Smooth,velvety. Caressing.Beautiful mouthfeel. Pears cooked in a vanilla syrup.
Finish: Long,reluctantly fading.
Comment: A bourbon cask maturation followed by a rum finish ? Take your time toenjoy this sunny dram. Really subtle.

Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Sweet but rustic,with damp straw, some meatiness,a touch of ginger root.
Palate: Pineapple candy,very sweet,clean barley,zesty with some late spice.
Finish: Medium long,pleasant and with some sweet pepper and/or paprika notes.
Comment: Complex,intriguing but perhaps a tad too sweet for this taster.
