Tasting notes
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Baked apples and spicy malt. A pleasingly mature character to it.
Palate: Big bodied, slightly oily, with nutmeg and red wine. Sophisticated and assured.
Finish: Notably long, drying with dark syrup and liquorice notes.
Comment: A confident whiskey that feels as though it has some age to it.
8.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Rich and ripe, with some dark (cooked) black fruit. Raisin, cocoa, praline, coconut. Substantial smooth succulence.
Palate: Sweet start then it firms up in the centre where the nuts return melting into the chocolate and raisin. Chewy and tongue coating. Showing some complexity.
Finish: Long, sweet.
Comment: Beautifully balanced.
