Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Incredibly sweet and estery. Lemon, candy floss, Sugar Puffs, honey, mint, touch of smoke and cocoa. The oak emerges with water but ends up slightly flat with time.
Palate: Lemon-fresh and sugary sweet all the way. Cinnamon. Just a dab of water is needed here.
Finish: Light but intense.
Comment: Just lacks some depth. All a bit nervy, but worth seeking out.
7.3
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Cidery. Oily. Earthy.
Palate: Cooked apples. Over-ripe bananas.
Finish: Cloves. Medicinal. Tight on the tongue.
Comment: A welcome opportunity to taste a rare whisky, though it was never a classic, and in this instance is over the hill (or the Conval Hills?).
