Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Dry and dusty. A sweet oakiness is here balanced with a little bitter dark chocolate.
Palate: Plenty going on, tangy orange with brown sugar. Hints of vanilla cream and stewed fruits.
Finish: Dry and sweet.
Comment: A cracking grain whisky.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense. Varnish. Exotic wood. Vetiver. A sour fruit note which evokes a rye whiskey. Then vanilla creeps in and heads the way. Sweet and luscious.
Palate: Rich, deep. The same sour fruit note wrapped in creamy vanilla custard. Oak is more present than on the nose.
Finish: Dry, spicy. Ginger and white pepper. Blancmange in the back.
Comment: The balance between sweet and sour is perfect. A grain whisky? I would have thought of an old bourbon.
