Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Clean and sweet (though with high nose burn) moving into butterscotch, pineapple, green almond. Improves in the glass: sweet caramel, toffee, honey and banana.
Palate: Immediate perfumed hit: rose, apple skin, mango, orange smarties, with lightly gripping oak on sides of tongue giving good structure.
Finish: Pineapple returns.
Comment: A classy package.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Prickly. Buttery and biscuity. A mix of shortbread and oatcakes. A pleasant citrus note. Vanilla comes in a wave, followed by fruit.
Palate: Velvety. Sweet Demerara with a spicy dryness in the back. Tastes like a rum!
Finish: Dry and spicy. Quite fizzy. Grated ginger.
Comment: Has this grain whisky matured in a rum cask? Intensely rum-like. The cereal profile is somewhat masked on the palate.
