Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: A ripe nose of peach, crepe suzette, blood orange, heather honey, Golden Syrup and freshly cut pine. A hint of agave syrup in there too.
Palate: Fantastically drinkable especially at the bottling strength of 40% ABV, the peach notes of the nose are turned up to 11, backed by fluffy whipped cream, some strawberries and just a hint of oak. Light like a grain but with the body of a malt.
Finish: Amazingly well balanced with white flowers and cinnamon and apple doughnuts.
Comment: Wonderfully, fantastically, amazingly well made whisky. Well done.
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Succulent aromas of barley, honey and plenty of apricot, pineapple and melon. Wonderfully aromatic and fruity with a touch of vanilla oak and some freshening citrus and herbal notes.
Palate: More milky, vanilla oak which has the gentle tropical fruit and honey in a vice-like grip. A hint of citrus and minerality tries to balance.
Finish: Short and austere with a late juiciness.
Comment: Another whisky where the palate fails to deliver to what the nose promises!
