Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Savoury,floral,with touches of blueberry and cranberry.
Palate: Not like the nose:full,bold,oily and with a savoury mushroom note under the barley.
Finish: Long,full and earthy.
Comment: A growling bear among a bunch of deer-like whiskies.This is a good thing. The mushroomy noteis one I associate with newJapanese whiskies.
