Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Some peat. Grassy.
Palate: Sweet and slightly rooty. Candied angelica. Starts smooth and sweet, then develops a curiously fibrous dryness.
Finish: Liquorice. Pepper.
Comment: Slightly gin-like. I have preferred bottlings that had more contribution from the wood. A touch of vanilla would round out the flavours.
7.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Crisp, malty and nutty with a light earthy note.
Palate: Sweet to start, but the wood stands slightly apart from the spirit. Young but has a delicate charm.
Finish: Lemon, then butter.
Comment: Young but attractive. A distillery to watch.
