Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Almond pastries dusted with icing sugar. Very raisiny, with butterscotch and lemon peel too. With time more citrus/sour notes appear, along with more floral character.
Palate: Very drinkable at cask strength, with a corn-like character, grassy and citric (orange perhaps).
Finish: Medium length and dryish.
Comment: A pleasant summery kind of dram.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Green fruit crispness. Slight acidity. Dusty, chalky top notes. Faint turpentine and resin notes? Balsam? More rounded, toffee notes with water.
Palate: Tart. Peppery. Dusty dryness. (Lemon juice?). Fresher with water.
Finish: Drying and quite abrupt, but not unpleasant. Artichokes. Faintly smoky.
Comment: Puts me in mind of an aged Tequila, with a big splash of lime.
