Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Dry and fragrant with dried cranberry, a touch of dried flowers,black cherry, sweetened with cinnamon,then comes oak lactone,clover honey.
Palate: Charred wood,then a waxy feel giving way to tobacco,cedar,date,green tea.Lifted,complex and balanced.
Finish: Long and elegant.
Comment: If this is John Ramsay's last blend then what a way to go. Masterly. The slow ever-changing multifaceted style is blending at its very best.
9.3
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Oaky and resiny. Overcooked blackcurrant jam. Sultanas. Hint of musty walls. Rich and big. Liquorice.
Palate: Thick and syrupy. Oaky sweetness. Then a better note. And spices. Still thatblackcurrant jam.
Finish: Dry,spicy. Grippy.
Comment: You have got to like oaky whiskies. A lot of rich notes and complexity but the oak is too prominent for me. It should have left its cask earlier.
