Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Orange, mixed peel, dried papaya and ginger. Subtle swirling smoke and some sweet medicinal character, like Pink Dettol. Some malty, nutty cereal character.
Palate: Lime starbursts, marmalade and fruit syrup. A great malty body.
Finish: Sweet, oaky and a little smoky.
Comment: A great body wearing flattering clothes, the oak showing off the spirit's considerable curves in a classy way.
8.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Toothpaste/spearmint, macadamia nut but with slightly harsh alcohol behind. Water brings out a waxy note.
Palate: Sweet, with a lovely peach jam quality which impresses after a let-down of a nose.
Finish: Gentle smooth hint of smoke.
Comment: Decent enough, and the palate is lovely, but somehow you expect more after 24 years in the cask.
