Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Plenty of saline fresh grain with some sweet, dried fruit underpinning. A touch of estery apricot and banana along with sweet vanilla, toffee and herbal rye-like notes.
Palate: Opens with the lightly oiled but spicy grain with the malt coming through on the middle. Subtly oaked with hints of barley, but the grain is the dominating factor.
Finish: Long and grainy with a touch of coffee and sweet grain notes.
Comment: A grain heavy blend which has a lovely vibrancy and just enough malt character to add depth.
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Nothing too spectacular on the nose, there is a creamy note which mixes with oak spice and some dried fruits.
Palate: The palate is led by sweet vanilla notes from grain whisky, with malt elements to the side of the palate. Like a Mr Whippy.
Finish: The sweetness of the palate turns slightly bitter for a dusty finish.
Comment: A very creamy and vanilla fronted product.
