Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Slightly earthy tones of cinnamon and musk, with a touch of royal jelly and over ripe plums.
Palate: Subtle with layers of honey, spices and a hint of red chilli. Black cherries, again but this time framed with some lovely oaky tones which give a richness and depth. Very drinkable.
Finish: A big whack of real vanilla (pods) and the big oak which suggests this isn’t a shy and retiring dram, but one with some robustness to it.
Comment: Bigger than the last dram and more balanced, to boot.
8.5
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Strawberry yogurt, some fresh peach, creamy cereal and a hint of orange blossom.
Palate: Strawberry toffee chews, a touch of earthiness, coupled with a darker tobacco note, honey and Turkish delight.
Finish: Sweet, with a lingering creaminess and a waft of the tobacco again.
Comment: Similar to the previous sample, but perhaps not quite as well rounded in the fruit department.
