Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Big, stewed fruit nose. Plump, rumsoaked raisins with a pleasant cheesynote behind. Farmyards once more along with a little sulphur.
Palate: Slightly bitter walnut and chicory to begin with, then some mushroomketchup. Liquorice, fruit cake, nuts with a fresh acidity. Good integration.
Finish: Toasted almond.
Comment: Balanced and integrated.
8.3
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Initially a rootsy, fungal and chestnuty nose, giving way to rich caramel andhazelnut whirl.
Palate: Medium full mouth feel, with an intriguing balance between softtinned peach and cream, a tangy and savoury mix.
Finish: The tangy salty notes stay the distance in what is an evolving kaleidoscope of a whisky.
Comment: Again complex and involved but in this case, confusing.
