Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A mildly damp leaf quality after the first hit of wood. A slight whiff of coffee and some exotic spices.
Palate: Sweet oak dominates, then a heavy burnt sugar note comes through. Spices develop with some dark fruit.
Finish: Keeps going with the sweet oak.
Comment: A very mellow dram, great for this time of year.
8.0
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Sour. Cider apple. Sandalwood. Fading rose. A hint of Turkish delight. A heavier woody note in the back.
Palate: Smooth, sweet. The same earthy/woody note as on the nose. Well balanced with the nose. Exotic fruit and Demerara sugar. Prunes.
Finish: Lingering. Soothing on liquorice. Keeping the woody character.
Comment: A grain whisky ? Slightly over the top but showing a very pleasant aromatic profile.
