Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: A substantial mix of pressed hedgerow fruits, cooked nettles, scented woods and some whisky rancio.
Palate: Needs water to reveal some real complexity. Gentle fruity touches -raspberry jam skimmings, ice cream, butterscotch and a pleasingbitterness. Elegant and old.
Finish: Minty.
Comment: An exemplary old gently matured whisky.
8.8
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Soft, rounded and fruity, with orange and mandarin.
Palate: A lovely full mouth feel but still gentle and exquisite. Like a fruit cordial butwith enough earthy spicy notes to give it some depth.
Finish: The mixed spices and fruit combine pleasantly for a medium finish.
Comment: This distillery has always been capable of greatness. Maybe this will kick-start a comeback under the new (ish) owners.
