Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Amazingly dry for this distillery, showing a touch of heather and the faintest hint of something citrus.
Palate: Explosive start by contrast to the nose, quite peppery throughout but allowing grapey, oak depth.
Finish: The oak continues to fill out with vanilla.
Comment: This is sophisticated stuff and complex.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Very oily. Orange zest. Citrus peels. Lemon.
Palate: Oily. Lemon. Mustard. Pine nuts. Cream.
Finish: Late cress. Bitter salad leaves. Powerfully dry.
Comment: That distinctive pine-nut character perhaps derives from the Amontillado sherry, but its influence is otherwise restrained.
