Tasting notes
Taster   Mark Newton
Nose: Vanilla custard, light floral honey. Plenty of sweet treats, custard cream biscuits, salted caramel and burnt toffee. Pears and grape juice, but never really gets going.
Palate: Dense enough texture, bringing flavour. Vanilla custard yet again, golden syrup, but with melon, grapefruit and gooseberries. Green apples and muscovado sugar.
Finish: Long, with a lot of heat from the wood that nicely balances out the sweetness.
Comment: Grain whisky can be very boring, but this one is fruity and classy fun.
Taster   Laura Foster
Nose: Baked apple sponge cake sprinkled in cinnamon and doused with custard. A clear streak of wood varnish.
Palate: The initial impression of sweet vanilla custard and apple gives way to a distinctly green, herbal core. Plenty of heat, but add water and the heat dissipates, revealing a surprisingly creamy whisky with honeysuckle top notes.
Finish: Dry, with green hints, wood varnish and more of that vanilla.
Comment: I like the texture of this whisky neat, but comes into its own with water.
