Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Heavily oaked nose, plenty of vanilla with pineapple, banana and sweet but herbal rye-like spices. Rather sweet and buttery but the spices keep it lively.
Palate: Initially toffeed oak but the herbal rye-like spices come through fast. Drier than the nose with softer spices and a herbal intensity.
Finish: Long and herbal (camphor and camomile). A touch of honey and coffee. Sweet oak returns to counteract the drying spices. The dryness holds.
Comment: Love the intensity of this. Not to everyone’s taste, but if you love young, herbal rye whisky then it will be.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Malty. At first an earthy and floral note. Bracken and gorse. Fresh sap. Then sweet aromas arrive. Vanilla, barley sugar.
Palate: Smooth and sweet. Satin-like texture. Vanilla syrup with a touch of cinnamon. Reluctantly drying on a spicy note.
Finish: Quite short, nutty. A chocolate mint aftertaste.
Comment: A pleasant dram but maybe too much on the sweet side. Some green oak on the palate. Best served without water.
