Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Creamy. Hint of ground almonds.
Palate: Medium to full body. Firm, smooth. Apples and pears, freshly peeled and cut. Fruit salad.
Finish: Quick touch of caramel dryness. Oranges in caramel.
Comment: More mature than its 10 years would suggest. Fruitier than the conventional distillery bottlings. Refreshing. Like sorbet between courses.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: An interesting nose: red fruits, (redcurrant, raspberry) then sultana and other dried fruit, struck matches, rubber, mushroom, oak.
Palate: Sweet and malty to start. Cherry and sultana cake with sloe, black fruits and raisin.
Finish: A little hard.
Comment: The nose suggests this was in sherry before being in Port. Has Glenrothes character but a bit dry.
