Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Sultanas and mixed peel. Prune juice, and a hint of smokiness. Blackberry and apple cumble, with some stem ginger. Liebkuchen and christmas cake spices.
Palate: Apricot jam, dark chocolate and a good shake of gingery spice. Bath Oliver biscuits.
Finish: More of that smoky woodiness.
Comment: A sophisticated, spicy dram with oodles of class.
8.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: A glossy kind of nose: ripe fruits, polished oak, oolong tea, roasted cereal and cocoa nibs. With water a delicious deep fruit cake note.
Palate: Soft, slow, silky with a slightly syrupy quality and firm oak. Water smooths things. Manages to be sweet with treacle toffee weight.
Finish: Shifts to chocolate and fades. Elegance.
Comment: Beautifully calm and seamless after the rugged attack of the Laphroaig.
