Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Shoe polish (suede cleaner), dark chocolate, tinned black cherry piefilling, floor polish. More complex with water becoming orange accented.
Palate: Soft, with red fruits. Tart and acidic moving into kumquat before abarrage of red and black fruits.
Finish: Light red cherry notes.
Comment: Just a little lacking in full integration. You can sense the whisky sittingunderneath the finish.
7.6
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Floral bath foam. Green vegetables. Sweet chestnut.
Palate: Savoury and sappy, and with an interesting balance between berryfruits and ginger barley.
Finish: Medium, earthy and fruity.
Comment: This is like batting against a team with four fast bowlers. It's relentless. A tangy taste sensation, sure, but the jury's out as to whether the malt's beenenhanced by the finish.
