Tasting notes
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Ripe banana, slightly fermented strawberries, vanilla pipe tobacco and fruit sherbet. Lively and exceptionally fruity.
Palate: The fruit continues to the palate, with rhubarb fool, fresh vanilla pods, a creamy strawberry note and an almost Californian Rosé wine note.
Finish: Dry and malty, with a touch of pepperiness too.
Comment: A very solid and vibrant American whiskey. Complex, creamy and very drinkable.
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: A rich and jammy nose with a hint of spice and Riveta. Pretty direct, with some additional hints of old leather and runny honey.
Palate: Very rich on the palate with heavy rye bread giving the leading flavours. Some black cherry hidden in the background which comes to the front with a splash of water. A hint of iodine.
Finish: The iodine comes right to the front of the finish, pushing through and powering over the winning line, followed by some sea salt, leaving the black cherry for dead.
Comment: A powerful and rewarding drop.
