Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Piri piri hot chicken, sweet honey and roasted parsnip soup and cured apricots.
Palate: Hot corn on the cob smothered in butter, pancakes with syrup and sugar with chunks of pineapple.
Finish: More pineapple, with a hint of suede.
Comment: Sweet, this shows that good whisky making is alive and well in Oz, even if there are better aged examples.
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Exceedingly herbal nose. A little feinty and manurey but there’s also some estery fruit and honey to offset. Fresh and invigorating with green banana, oily apricot, mandarin and a dusting of caster sugar.
Palate: Oilier than the nose with barley, apricot, banana, mandarin with plenty of herbal notes. Honeyed with an almost triple distilled high-toned character. A little caster sugar sweetens.
Finish: A little short and tart with lingering herbal notes and barley.
Comment: An entertaining little number resembling young, American oak aged Auchentoshan.
