Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Powerful but initially closed. Malty with hints of star anise and a sweet creaminess.
Palate: Buttered popcorn,that aniseed note comes through. Soft but water brings out layers of spice and dark fruits.
Finish: Mouth watering and sweet.
Comment: Comforting like a mug of hot chocolate.
8.2
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Good balance of spirit and sweet American oak notes. Dried nectarine. Quite plump with lots of anise. Water brings out lime,cinnamon and a vanilla softness.
Palate: Huge vanilla hit to start, ghee. Very very soft with no discernible grip. Needs a touch of water to bring out the sweet spices,mandarin, blackberry. Great flow. Grain?
Finish: Buttery and fat.
Comment: Silky and smooth.
