Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Notes of salted butter melting in a pan with brown sugar granules, mango and pork chops are followed with lemon zest, meringues and yoghurt covered raisins.
Palate: A savoury kick to start with barbequed pork, red Leicester and pepper kebabs. Hints of pineapple, freshly brewed coffee and lemon meringue pie.
Finish: Finish doesn’t hang around, but a nuttiness does cling on.
Comment: Can never decide your favourite between sweets or crisps? Then this whisky is perfect.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A great and aromatic nose, not quite but some lovely farmyard notes going on in here. Fresh malted barley and cut hay. Goat’s cheese and honey. Underneath you get the oak tannins starting to grip.
Palate: The aromas move more now to melted brown sugar and butter. There is a gentle smoke here.
Finish: Long and sweet. However the sweetness is now it is moderated by a fresh cut grass note. A little oak tannin.
Comment: A very easy going, well put together dram. Nice balance to it.
