Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sun-tan lotion, cafe latte. Macadamia. Sweet with ripe tropical fruits. In time fragrant wood and shoe leather. Water brings out a lightly floral touch alongside caramelised fruit sugars. Balanced with some complexity.
Palate: Almost creamy to start, then flambéed banana white chocolate and great length.
Finish: Long and unctuous.
Comment: A very high quality grain.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Hints of steamed milk, leather and a certain exotic fragrance develops over time.
Palate: That milk note becomes more creamy at first then develops into chocolate.
Finish: Seems togo on for ages.
Comment: Well worth seeking out.
