Tasting notes
Taster   Kate Packwood
Nose: Powdered sugar, grapefruit zest, ripe melon, stewed plums and sugared almonds, clementine flesh and freshly grated nutmeg.
Palate: Big fruity notes of melon, mango, apricot, ripe peach flesh and then lots of powdery spices including ground ginger, nutmeg and Szechuan pepper.
Finish: Dried chilli powder and white pepper prickle give way to drying tannins.
Comment: Lovely. Really nuanced spice with a luscious, fruity core as well.
9.3
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Melon and Parma ham, a little unsmoked bacon and toasted coconut. Sherry-soaked Christmas cake and sponge fingers. Brandy butter and ginger snap biscuits in time.
Palate: Full on Christmas cake spices and sherry-soaked raisins. Purple Chewit sweets, Liquorice Allsorts. Hints of orange zest too.
Finish: Long and spicy, with cinnamon and cloves slowly drying.
Comment: If Bertie Basset made whisky, awesome stuff.
