Tasting notes
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: It’s a slow opener, but eventually there’s dried fruit and caramelised muscovado sugar, toasted nuts and worn leather with plum jam. There’s a fierce alcohol nose prickle.
Palate: Juicy and fruity with baked apples and dried citrus peel. Water tames the somewhat overwhelming oak and alcohol spice, revealing vanilla, chocolate biscuits, raisins and cooked banana.
Finish: Charred hazelnuts, brioche, black treacle and a handful of prunes.
Comment: Fruity, warm and comforting, a perfect Autumnal treat.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: That ABV hits first, huge alcohol and not much else. Sort of shy but in time releases a buffet of figs, apricots, goats cheese and honey.
Palate: Again with that foodie influence, Christmas cake and Cheddar cheese, banana bread with seville orange marmalade. Walnut fondants, milk chocolate and brown sugar syrup.
Finish: All heads off toward Christmas, long and lush.
Comment: A very lovely whisky with great cask influence. Water really sweetens it up.
