Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Big and brash with buttery oak, heather honey and herbal notes. A combination of grassy Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and fleshy Vin d’Alsace Pinot Gris! A grain-like spirit note offers a little balance.
Palate: Full, sweet and robustly fleshy. A new world Sauvignon Blanc character makes it feel bubblegummy. Enough minerality and alcohol to balance the sweetness.
Finish: Mouth-filling and long. The citrus and mineral notes freshen the finish but that lightly herbal fruit really lingers.
Comment: Interesting! I don’t think I have ever tasted a whisky with so much winey fruit.
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Sliced red apple that is turning brown, chopped hazelnuts, some menthol notes underneath and a little light vanilla.
Palate: Quite dry and spicy – like an apple tart, dusted in allspice, with a drizzle of lemon juice.
Finish: Apple skins and drying oak.
Comment: A straight bat this. Perhaps erring on the youthful side, but with some pleasant vibes alongside.
