Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Delicate, sweet short crust pastry. Marzipan and raspberry jam. Raisins.
Palate: Oily, vaguely fruity, honeyed. Faintly herbal.
Finish: More like a dessert wine than a whisky. Rich, creamy and filling.
Comment: Visually, a very attractive whisky - rich amber and gloriously viscous. If my suspicions are correct, an earlier expression of this whisky reminded me of a Peshwari Nan. Must be shared and discussed with friends.
9.3
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Honey porridge, coconut and a savoury, clove-like spice. Fresh orange: zest and pithy.
Palate: Raisiny, slightly spicy with lots of vanilla.
Finish: Citric and lightly bitter.
Comment: Pleasing, bright, and easy-going. A good gift whiskey, but not one for the new breed of crusading Whiskey Adventurer.
