Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Charming mellow, but slightly exotic nose; fenugreek, coconut/gorse with vanilla, orange, pears and apple blossom.
Palate: Very soft and clean with a zesty tangerine/orange peel touch and a delicious hazelnut/almond crunch in the centre.
Finish: Soft and juicy.
Comment: A superbly balanced blend. You can't fail to love it.
9.0
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Sweet limes. Leafy. Cypress or sandalwood.
Palate: Marshmallow maltiness, rose-water, then cedary, briar-like dryness. A remarkable integration of sensuousness and severity.
Finish: Joss-stick smokiness.
Comment: Demanding and stern. Take some time to understand it. A complex whisky as it reveals its secrets.
