Tasting notes
Taster   Kate Portman (nee Ennis)
Nose: Steaming porridge,a hint of heather honey but also some beguiling savoury herbalness - after a while,crème caramel.
Palate: Mouth feel is viscous and soft. Honeyed creaminess initially but then the herby spice comes throughbefore it mellows again.
Finish: Maintains its presence well.
Comment: A beguiling dram that evolves in the glass.
7.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Light and 'grainy'. Seems young and lacking real personality. Tisane, jasmine and banana. In time becomes floury and slightly yeasty.
Palate: Banana once again,sour apple. Young and quite hard and though the oak is adding a certain creaminess hasn't built up real succulence.
Finish: Herbal.
Comment: Good spirit, but an average whisky.
