Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sweet spices with toffee, banana, cream, dried pear and fruit cake (sultana, raisin and cherry). Complex and delicious.
Palate: The spiciness comes right through from the start giving a subtle lift to the rich fruits, light sherry and ginger loaf.
Finish: Long and soft.
Comment: A very elegant, superbly balanced middle-weight dram.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: A subtle suggestion of soft liquorice, as in Pontefract cakes.
Palate: Light, soft, syrupy. The liquorice more emphatic now. Spanish root. Develops juicy, mouth-watering flavours. Aniseed. Coconut.
Finish: Soothing, relaxing.
Comment: A whisky for a reverie. Daydream of childhood and the local sweet-shop.
