Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Hides behind its ABV to start with, but in time cherry, marzipan and layers of buttered pastry emerge. Vanilla custard and raisin-laden suet pudding follow. A punch of rye spices and cumin, chilli prickle.
Palate: Wonderful and sweet, a soft lavender floral note pervades everything. Cherry pipe tobacco and then red strawberry laces. Cherry pie with hot custard, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Finish: A slow burner, with that lavender floral edge taking everything.
Comment: Kentucky is turning out some fine whiskeys at the moment and long may it last.
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Buttered corn on the cob, polished mahogany, milk chocolate raisins and petroleum. Pineapple cubes and Haribo strawberries. Rounded up with mango sorbet.
Palate: A rollercoaster ride of barbecued mango skin, roasted figs and sandalwood. Honeycomb pieces drizzled with hot passionfruit coulis to the sweetness of French onion soup.
Finish: Long and malty. Add water to bring out some super peachiness.
Comment: Keeps you guessing. Bartender, another please!
