Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Exuberantly estery and fruity with pineapple, banana, guava, melon, creamy oak and a touch of eucalyptus. A touch of pomegranate and musky flower emers along with a late toffee note. Over time the toffee begins to dominate.
Palate: Crisper and less estery than the nose, showing more barley, but the sub-tropical under-ripe banana, melon and pineapple are still there along with the toffee. Quite herbal, almost rye-like on the middle.
Finish: Long, juicy and really well balanced.
Comment: An all-round lovely malt. An Irish rye whiskey perhaps?
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: A flavoured whisk(e)y has slipped in? Nutmeg, vanilla, lemon and a little dried ginger. If there are no additional flavours here, lord knows what wood they have laid their hands on.
Palate: Slightly sweet, but then immediately very dry. The vanilla turns bitter, the caramel darker and the lemon zest more fleshy and pithy.
Finish: Very dry indeed, with lingering apple skins on the death.
Comment: Very unusual. Almost like a liqueur, but without any of the syrupy sweetness on the palate.
