Tasting notes
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Dusty hayloft, cedarwood, cherry brandy, dark chocolate, ginger root, chinotto and black treacle.
Palate: Light-medium bodied. Caramel, coffee liqueur, sweet red berry fruits (strawberry, blackberry, cherry), orange oils, sage and wonderfully bittersweet, reminiscent of amaro, though the sweetness wins out.
Finish: Medium. ‘Green’ notes of cucumber and apple core emerge, but the berries remain.
Comment: A complex and balanced single malt, with some youthful character that suggests it will get even better.
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Like taking a walk through a forest on a damp autumnal day, before heading to a picnic with Black Forest gateau.
Palate: More of the dark chocolate shavings from the nose, then gets a little zesty with lemon juice, green apple skins, marzipan and a peppery note cutting through.
Finish: Returns to the damp mossy note here.
Comment: An enjoyable combination of rich and earthy notes – thankful for that nutty sweetness giving it more depth.
