Tasting notes
Taster   Joe Bates
Nose: Lots of old wood on the nose, cedar and oak mixed with Autumnal bonfire smoke.
Palate: A whisky of great power: Golden Syrup sweetness, warming spice and gentle smoke.
Finish: A very long, sweet finish which stays on the palate for ages.
Comment: An intense, complex flavour which you’d expect for a €1000 whisky – a very regal dram out of the reach of most.
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Quite overtly sherried, with figs, raisins, spicy Jaffa oranges, cedar and soft leather.
Palate: Silky in the mouth, old leather, muted spice, ginger, sherry, sweet peat, a hint of mint.
Finish: Long, with dark chocolate, figs, smoke and spice.
Comment: A lovely old Highland Park, but a bit hard on the wallet.
