Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Crispy bacon rashers, slightly waxy like beeswax, polished oak and damp tweed. Gentle smoke lurks, distant wood fires. Toasted linseed bread with bitter orange marmalade.
Palate: That wood smoke unfurls. A sauna – warm, damp cedar wood and birchwood smoke. Underneath fruits, red berries and blackcurrants.
Finish: Long and delicately smoked, with a slight bacon fattiness to it.
Comment: Just lovely, different and quite breathtaking.
Taster   Sam Coyne
Nose: Full-English in bed? Would be rude not to. A roasted meat aroma that is slightly underpinned by clean linen. Curious...
Palate: If the nose was a full-English, you've now moved on to Canadian pancakes. Syrup and summer berries. A bit of wood smoke. You've left the breakfast in bed and now sit by a forest camp-fire.
Finish: Long and we're back to cooked meats.
Comment: This breakfast whisky is catching on. Could be trouble! I'm not much of a bacon fan, but that nose could turn a vegetarian.
