Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: A real ‘old school’ nose to this, of whiskies from a by-gone era: sandalwood, oak and dusty 1960s classrooms. Reminds me of old White Horse without the smoke.
Palate: Thick and oily, again the ‘old bottled whisky’ notes are there of cut pine, Ercol furniture and vintage shops. It is thick, oily and filled with honey.
Finish: Sweet, honeyed and really very tasty! Waffles with syrup.
Comment: Whisky-making from the past, but not long aged. Not for everyone, but a yes from me!
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Coffee, baked fruit and herbal spirit notes. It certainly feels like it has some maturity and late notes of buttery oak.
Palate: Shows plenty of relatively straightforward baked fruit with a hint of orange and oak.
Finish: Long with lingering baked fruit and citrus.
Comment: A pleasant and mature whisky. Perhaps lacking the complexity or flavour development to really excite.
