Tasting notes
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Thornton's Bonfire Toffee, bananas cooked in foil over the fire, some spicy mulled cider notes and fresh ginger.
Palate: Buttery and oily on the palate, with more of the toffee, a hint of hot buttered brown toast and plump vanilla.
Finish: Llingering woody notes, liquorice root and black coffee.
Comment: nother bold one for the chilly months. Seems like whisky makers are getting their release dates right!
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Malty. Fudge, creamy. Fusel oil. Garden mint.
Palate: Sweet and slightly biting. That funny note of oil again, like a taste of doughnut. Drying on a dour sour oak note. Like old cider.
Finish: Dry, sharp, biting.
Comment: A burning feel. Alcohol is not well mastered. And that oily note is not pleasant.
