Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Light fruits: citrus pith, grapefruit, tinned peach, marzipan. Light smoke, tea caddy. Sweet and lightly juicy with crispness. In time, menthol whittled sticks and apricot stone.
Palate: Sweetness and juicy oiliness. Hazelnut, bitter orange, orange peel.
Finish: Nutty.
Comment: The wood becomes a little obvious.
Taster   Peter Mulryan
Nose: Tobacco tins and lemon grass.
Palate: A huge sherry embrace, which gives way to mince pies and very juicy peat.
Finish: Tickly spicy marmalade.
Comment: Finishing Cooley's peated malt in a sherry wood for a year works a lot better than I imagined, and makes me wonder what an unpeated malt would taste like after a year in Jerez.
