Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Citrus forward, then bubblegum softness. Almond oil and poached pears, pineapple chunks and a lot of syrup and resinous fresh wood.
Palate: Syrupy pineapple, mango and rich figs. A hint of amaretti biscuit, rubber tyres and orange blossom with cedarwood and allspice.
Finish: Fresh and bright cedar, then dries out to more of the chewy fig.
Comment: This is very rich and perhaps a dessert whisky with all that sweetness; the only thing knocking it off-balance for me is that dry finish.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Tart green apple and golden syrup. Fig roll. Delicate sweet cereal and a little sawn oak. Vanilla custard and brown sugar.
Palate: Medium bodied. Somewhat concentrated. Clarified apple juice, with some delicate lime oil. More fig roll, before a delicate almond note emerges. Gentle caramel and toffee apple.
Finish: Medium length. Sweetens to red apples and almonds.
Comment: Very well integrated and mature flavours make for a solid daily sipper.
