Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: A walk on sun-warmed sands that Wick might have difficulty in delivering. Tropical trees. Orange blossom.
Palate: Delicate. A hint of resin. Vanilla. Slightly winey.
Finish: Very salty. Very appetising.
Comment: Tastes like Manzanilla to me. I don't speak for anyone else.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Dusty warehouse. Hint of marine character and soft fruits. A little musty.
Palate: Good oily feel (typical of the distillery) apricot, Juicy Fruit chewing gum. Touch of smoke, dry oak.
Finish: Short.
Comment: All the elements are there but haven't knitted. Better with a couple more years in the cask.
