Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Crispy basil, nectarines, those foamy banana sweets, vanilla cream. Damp grass. Smoke from a fire made with damp logs. Lemon juice, peaches and Madeira cake.
Palate: More peaches and cream, toast and a wisp of woodsmoke.
Finish: Woody bitterness, like chewing a pencil.
Comment: A quality spirit standing up to a long maturation.
8.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Mature. Ever so slightly musty. Cognac-like nuttiness, some saddle soap, still a malty edge (draff).
Palate: Expands well in the mouth with light grip on the sides and almost blackcurrant sweetness in the middle before a bonfire smoke emerges. Dusty and slightly nutty.
Finish: Fresh and malty.
Comment: Have this without water. Hinting at complexity.
