Tasting notes
Taster   Paul Pacult
Nose: Absolutely beguiling perfumed bouquet that features multi-layered and mature scents of apricot, pear, sweet cereal, and honey. Enchanting.
Palate: The palate entry speaks of Strathisla smoke. The mid-palate offers complex tastes of oaky vanilla, cocoa and butterscotch. Medium to full-bodied.
Finish: It glides down the throat in embers-warm, silky and mildly peaty tastes.
Comment: The blend for grown-ups, for people who have made their rites of passage and are ready to enjoy their success. Sweet, but not cloying. Buxom, but not overblown. Balanced.
9.0
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Distinct marshmallow. Peach blossom. Faint cocoa.
Palate: Light. Hazelnuts. Cream. Buttercups. Violets. Lavender. Herbal.
Finish: A little snappy and aggressive.
Comment: The flavours tail off, as though the whisky is going to sleep. Smooth and easy, but lacks liveliness. Springtime never quite blossoms into summer.
