Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: A heavyweight that wallows in its oaky resonance and malty sweetness. Really pleasing.
Palate: Awesome display of toffee apple, chocolate fudge and demerara sugar.
Finish: Sweet vanilla, late wisp of peat.
Comment: Simply the best rendition.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Seville orange peel. A hint of tamarind (suggested by the colour?). Pronounced cloves. Cough sweets. Slight phenol.
Palate: The aroma is carried through in the palate. Very fruity and spicy. Attenuated maltiness. Firm.
Finish: Drying. Strong sandalwood or cedar flavours.
