Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Purple grapes and candied almonds, raisin toast and butter, printer ink and blotting paper and digestive biscuits with soft toasty oak.
Palate: Dark chocolate gentle bitterness with plum compote, fresh red chilli spice and a cayenne pepper kick.
Finish: Long and spicy with lots of fresh red chilli heat.
Comment: Feisty and excitable yet well balanced. A winner for fans of a chocolate and chilli combination.
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: Soft and unobtrusive, with caramel sauce, toffee pieces and stewed apples, accented by the odd raisin and sprinkle of cinnamon.
Palate: Gentle again, with notes of warm apple pie, plump sultanas, shortcrust pastry, caramel and vanilla ice cream, all enveloped in a little faint smoke.
Finish: Another helping of apple pie, this time with a singed crust.
Comment: A lovely balance of distillery character influenced gently by the cask.
