Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Young and spirity. Faintly citric freshness above a malty, biscuity base.
Palate: Crisp. Sweet. Minty.
Finish: Eucalyptus. Fresh and appetising.
Comment: A refreshing young whisky that would make a great aperitif when neat, or mixed in a classic Manhattan.
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Estery, with melon, pear drops and ripe bananas. Meadow flower, varnish and something lightly chemical (sorry, couldn't put my finger on it). With water it turns like hot, dusty radiators, and turned a little acidic with a distinct whiff of vinegar.
Palate: Fruity, slightly peaty and woody. A little thin.
Finish: More woody bitterness.
Comment: I was put off by that sour/acidic vinegar note that seemed like a clear fault.
