Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Aroma with delightful strands of exotic fruit and honey. Fruit cake. Oak adds to feeling of class.
Palate: Lush, pleasingly deep and malty. A firm nuttiness adds extra oily, chewability to the toffee.
Finish: Drier than of old. Caramel toffee with the oak guarantees a bittersweet edge.
Comment: An old faithful of a bourbon. Never lets you down and being from the wheaty school always shows good oak balance. Nose is to die for.
8.5
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Wheaty, nutty. Bananas?
Palate: Buttered toast. Molasses. Maple syrup.
Finish: Clean, dryish, flapjack.
Comment: Beautifully structured. Tightly combined flavours. Every bit as smooth as it claims to be.
