Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Pineapple, marshmallows and buttered corn on the cob toasting on an open fire with salted peanuts peeking through.
Palate: An explosion of salted peanuts, barbequed corn, charred oak and hot Nutella, mixed with sweet pineapple and rhubarb. Small undertones of asparagus, stir-fry noodles and pinenuts.
Finish: A buttery and dry texture with a salty finish.
Comment: Peanut butter and dark chocolate brownies – pure guilty pleasures.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Dusty warming radiators at first, spicy and a little metallic hint – in a lovely way. Then hot, buttered corn bread with green chilli pepper spice. Maraschino cherries and honey Floral perfume note.
Palate: All those spices punch through the sweetness. Oak tannins pull at the cheeks, and a little salt cracker edge dries slowly. Peanut butter cut with coconut milk and chilli paste.
Finish: Dries with those spices and a little oak.
Comment: A perfectly perfumed sipping whiskey.
