Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Spirity and ethereally light. More malty and sweet when reduced.
Palate: A hot dram at first, but offers immediately a faultlessly clean maltiness.
Finish: More of the same. The final notes show a lush richness usually associated with small stills and lots of copper.
Comment: Beyond the stark, disappointing nose, this is a genuinely fine dram. The star turn is the balance.
7.5
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Freshly cut ripe, sweet, pears. Scented.
Palate: Tastes of cream, nectarines, melons and pears. Soft, stalky and woody.
Finish: Refreshing.
Comment: Not much complexity, but an unusually summery whisky.
7.5
