Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Ripe, very sweet and long. Toasted/polished oak, light resin notes, nutmeg.
Palate: Still sweet: a soft start, vanilla custard, a hint of dried fruit, baked banana, cinnamon, vanilla. Honeyed centre. Toasted, indeed roasted, wood gives much needed grip.
Finish: Membrillo.
Comment: Exuberant, sweet and extremely well balanced. A great introduction to whisky.
8.3
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Elegant, refined. Orange crème brûlée. Chocolate slowly shines through. Beeswax.
Palate: Silky, very sensuously coating the mouth. Slightly clinging to the palate. Candied orange. Marmalade. Cloves and cinnamon. Very rich.
Finish: Drier, Seville oranges, a touch of liquorice.
Comment: An elegant dram, dominated by orange and spices. For a Christmas treat? Water is not needed.
