Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Quite lush and fruity. Medium sweet, softly malted but lashings of vanilla.
Palate: Confident and assertive-then the taste buds are treated to an outrageous outbreak of spicy, multi-layered oaky complexity. Earthy stuff.
Finish: Dark chocolate and raisins. Very, very long.
Comment: This is startlingly wonderful. Only for those who prefer a malt that talks. Brilliant.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Clean, soft, peatiness. Fresh spiciness. Apricots.
Palate: Cream-toffee. Hints of chocolate, cinnamon, oranges and lemon grass.
Finish: Lightly peaty. Cedary.
Comment: Much more life and structure.
