Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Massive and complex. Burnt sugar, dark fruits, bitter plum and tangerine skins, sour cherry sweets.
Palate: Follows the nose, burnt sugar and sour cherries. Then come more spiced notes with a baked apple pie note dominating.
Finish: Big, oaked and exhilarating.
Comment: A bold, well balanced whiskey.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense.A big whiff of rye.Sour fruit. Cranberry jelly. Burnt plums. Touch of bitter orange marmalade. In time, a floral note. Freesia. Peony. Quite expressive and complex.
Palate: Smooth at start then crisp and tightened. The same profile as on the nose. Overcooked plum jam. Spices. Ginger, cinnamon. Rich and well balanced.
Finish: Long, oaky, spicy.
Comment: A bourbon close to a rye whiskey, well structured and quite complex.
