Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: A perfumed fruitiness, like a very ripe and fragrant pear. Lemon fudge.
Palate: A viscous, oily texture, and more of that lovely pear and some apple crumble.
Finish: Sponge cake.
Comment: Good sipping malt with pleasing sweetness and satisfying texture.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Acetone and burning plastic. Light and rumlike fragrance. Citrus oils.
Palate: A positive change from that slightly odd nose. Scented grass, apple blossom. A lacy feel to it. A drift of smoke just discernible.
Finish: Gentle and sweet. Orchard fruit.
Comment: One for the palate and not the nose.
