Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Pungent and woody. Like opening a humidor, fresh tobacco. Black treacle and leaf mulch.
Palate: Toffee and vanilla. Dried fruits, almost coffee like. A nutty quality.
Finish: Short and fresh.
Comment: Complex and intriguing as an old whisky should be.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Earthy. Dried mint and bayleaf with some eucalyptus, even enamel paint and hot clay. With water there’s baked apple and shoe wax but the slightly grubby earthiness remains.
Palate: A strange mix of the sweet and the bitter. High oak extracts. Moves in two directions: the intense and the bitter but and doesn’t resolve the issue.
Finish: Cacao.
Comment: Too dry and bitter for me.
