Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Small grains to the fore with a lovely malt-rye interplay. Fittingly delicate and floral.
Palate: Much denser on the palate, in fact surprisingly heavy. Roasty, burnt raisins a hint of coffee and burnt fudge. Unbelievably chewy.
Finish: More of the same, though the fade out is slow and tantalising.
Comment: Unquestionably the best bottles sample from this distillery I've tasted yet.
9.0
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Lightly nutty. Lightly winey. Some appetising sweetness.
Palate: Light. Very winey. Falls away in the middle.
Finish: Very sweet. Treacle toffee. Nice and lingering.
Comment: Lacking in dimension for a single barrel. Saved by the finish.
