Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: This spirit is of good quality and the nose reflects this with a delicate touch of spirit, vanilla, honey and strawberry laces. It isn’t overpowering but the aromas are not lost.
Palate: Easy drink, gives flavours of ginger cake and liquorice, with a hint of burnt toast and a touch of vanilla. With time the oak dryness becomes dominant.
Finish: Very dry and spicy, which detracts from the palate and the wonderfully inviting nose.
Comment: A great start but let down a little by the back palate and the overly dry finish.
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Oily, youthful and a little feinty but the coffee, toffee covers. Hints of green apple, barley and subtle sherried, dried fruit follow. Hints of herbal rye-like notes.
Palate: Fresher with more citric character. Plenty of soft but grippy, sherrywood tannins. Hints of dry, dusty, coffee and mocha come through on the middle.
Finish: Good citric finish with the alcohol clearing the dusty residue to leave a heathery and dried herbal aftertaste.
Comment: A little raw beneath the oak, but if left longer in the cask the oak notes might possibly have become more drying and bitter.
