Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Thick, resinous and richly scented with a drift of smoke overlaid by a beautiful perfume. Water pulls out a silky soft note with grilled nut, fig jam and with time honey. Layered and complex.
Palate: Sweet start. Light, tea-like tannins, hard toffee, chestnut, ginger spiciness. Silky feel.
Finish: Embers, oak, Dundee cake. Very long. Becomes a little tight with time.
Comment: A fantastic dram. Overlook this at your peril.
9.0
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Perfumy. Rosewater. Pruney.
Palate: Starts sweet. Rather thin. Soft, gentle. Falling apart somewhat.
Finish: Slight woody astringency.
Comment: The russet colour promised something more luxurious, but this whisky is not as rich as it was.
