Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Clean linen. Cedar. Fresh oak. Palo cortado sherry.
Palate: Remarkably smooth. Sweet. Hints of brazil nut and apple.
Finish: Creamy. Hint of lemon pith dryness. Very delicate touch of sherry.
Comment: A lovely, complex, sophisticated malt.
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Very clean nose: the oak is minimal with honeyed-grassy malt. Beguiling.
Palate: A fabulous, honey-sweet infusion of tender malty notes do take on a waxy middle.
Finish: Bitter-sweet and still waxy with mounting vanilla and even a late hint of cocoa.
Comment: By no means the most complex whisky on the market, but unquestionably one of the most elegant and charming.
