Tasting notes
Taster   Peter Mulryan
Nose: Camphor, hints of peat and loads of vanilla.
Palate: A full on tongue riot as melons and custard creams go at it big time.
Finish: The lurking peat finally makes itself felt.
Comment: A very enjoyable, no nonsense malt.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Estery. Hint of putty, cake mix, macadamia, lawnmower box. Then dry oak, pencil shavings, nectarine and light (dried) floral notes.
Palate: Starts all delicate and perfumed then firms up. Lean and balanced with a zesty citric lift and touches of nougat, clean oak and vanilla.
Finish: Peppery and spicy, then shaved oak.
Comment: In a Speyside mould. Well made and a good drink.
