Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Refresher sweeties, lavender and demerara rum. Leafy, floral and something slightly silagey.
Palate: Floral, with a bourbon-like character with lots of vanilla oak and some piney sap.
Finish: Demerara, rum-like sweetness.
Comment: Very pleasant aged whisky.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Ripe apples, treacle, leaf mulch, shifting slightly into linseed along with a flick of a leather. Water brings out a whiff of turps and dusty spices.
Palate: Real concentration, then napthalene. The leather comes back...as do tannins.
Finish: Dries significantly and reveals smoke.
Comment: This is a big mean mother whose youthful charms have been lashed into submission by oak.
