Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Powerful flowering currant.
Palate: Good malt background, but the esters seem to have vanished. Add water and they come out of hiding; not the usual fruit, but peppermint.
Finish: White pepper. Dry.
Comment: Dry Oloroso is a very good idea.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Pretty crisp. Corn, mouthwatering malt, clean wood with a wisp of smoke.
Palate: Good balance. Juicy fruits, curry leaves, cumin and earth. Fairly light.
Finish: Biscuity, dry.
Comment: Light but attractive.
