Tasting notes
Taster   Laura Foster
Nose: Chewing a dark chocolate caramel as you walk to a varnished mahogany sideboard sporting a leather chamois, before spotting a bowl containing honeydew melons.
Palate: Chewy. Gooey caramel and chocolate pudding with nuts, a green capsicum note and Szechuan pepper. More leather.
Finish: Leathery, dry and earthy. Used espresso granules. Once this dissipates, it’s all about… banana bread.
Comment: Satisfying. leather and chocolate notes balanced by tropical flavours.
Taster   Mark Newton
Nose: Heavy on the strawberry jam. Raisins and dried figs. Maple syrup. Sponge cake and custard. Raisins. Pencil shavings. It’s lovely, but at one end of the scale.
Palate: A repeat of the nose, and divine. In addition: notes of sauternes wine, with brazil nuts and dates. The wood shows, and comes with toffee and a faint cardboard note.
Finish: A minor metallic edge creeps in, and the bitter, peppery wood takes over.
Comment: Lovely whisky, but a touch one-sided. If you like this sort of thing, you’ll love this.
