Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Peat. Grass. Fruit. Musty.
Palate: Syrupy but firm. Medium-bodied. Robust. Peaty.
Finish: Mustardy, scenty, dry.
Comment: In a young whisky, I would have expected more freshness of flavour, but the elements are there, and the product shows promise.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Smoky, dry, heathery (and leathery). There's a grappa-like earthiness, barbecue smoke then, as it opens, an overpowering rubbery/feinty note.
Palate: Pretty sweet with some soft fruit and that heathery smoke on the sides of the tongue.
Finish: Clean. Short.
Comment: Young, maybe time in wood will mellow the rubbery nose.
