Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Toasty. Plenty of oak, pine sap, sawn wood, floor polish, then Lockets, mint nutmeg, praline.
Palate: A mix of soft and dry. Creamy texture balanced by sweet grippy oak. Guava, ripe orange, deck oil, biscuit, butterscotch toffee.
Finish: Light oak, coconut, toffee.
Comment: Fantastic for its age. Has retained the signature freshness.
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Initially zesty, perfumed, with developing vanilla and leather. Finally, as it dries out, lemons.
Palate: Assertive oak, developing into sherry and toffee.
Finish: More delicate oak, with attractive caramel notes cutting in later.
Comment: Good balance - has stood up to its cask well, retaining a zest not overwhelmed by age.
