Tasting notes
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: Strawberry jam and Turkish delight. As the heady fruitiness settles a dusty layer of sawdust and red apple shavings emerges.
Palate: Strawberry and lime-flavoured sweeties headline a youthful yet vibrant palate with very little cask influence. Water draws out more of the mouth-watering red fruits, now a blackberry and raspberry smoothie with black pepper and ginger spice.
Finish: Red wine gums and black pepper tingle.
Comment: Delicate influence from a red wine cask adds just enough character to a youthful and sprightly whisky.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Creamed corn from a can, a huge hit of hot milk, Weetabix and dark brown sugar. The sweetness of pureed tomatoes mixed with exotic spices. Packets of Fruit Pastilles, especially the red ones.
Palate: Grape skins and the corks from wine bottles. The drop of red wine in the bottom of the glass the day after. Tannins from black tea leaves. Ginger and turmeric spices.
Finish: Those spices start to tingle as the red wine notes dry out slowly.
Comment: An interesting and multi-layered whisky, with some lovely fruity edges to it.
