Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Charming, juicy, gentle and ripe. Succulent fruit (cooked apple, poached pear) balanced oak (vanilla). Water brings out dry bracken, thrift and sea spray.
Palate: Very soft malt. A sweet, succulent, subtly balanced malt that rolls around the mouth.
Finish: Hint of salt, butter and light smoke drifting by.
Comment: Elegant. You'd never guess it's 20 Years Old. Great balance between salt and soft fruit.
9.0
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: The fresh flowers by the shore are now being blown by sea air gusting off Loch Indaal.
Palate: More cereal grain oiliness. More fruit. More salt. More of everything.
Finish: Again, salt and iron. Warming and appetising.
Comment: Rounded, balanced and complex. Too expensive to pour on my porridge before an early morning walk on the Big Strand? I'll economise. I'll skip the porridge.
