Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Red apples and dried fruits (apple, coconut and papaya). With water a mustiness comes out, although with a fine oatiness like muesli-dust. Floral too.
Palate: A complex mix of fruit, chocolate and lots of wood.
Finish: Drying tannins grip to the tongue.
Comment: Tannic but pleasant enough old malt.
7.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Mature. Jammy, stewed fruit but slightly flat. Some currant and shoe polish. In time a mash tun note.
Palate: Sweet and honeyed with good depth. Tongue-coating. Oak showing. Hates water.
Finish: Short.
Comment: The wood has taken charge. Doesn't appear to have the character to carry extended aging.
