Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Bran, cereal husk, pear drops and daffodils. Freeze-dried raspberries and peach slices.
Palate: Oily texture which dries out and becomes astringent. Baked pears then dried flowers.
Finish: Dry and biscuity.
Comment: OK, but given that there are so many wonderful whiskies around, this gets lost.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Creamy and rounded if quite simple nose. Water brings out elderflower sweetness, but also a note akin to balloons.
Palate: Sweeter than the nose with cereal, oak, rubber and a confected sweetness. Thin and quite hot. Not quite knitted together.
Finish: Short, syrup, crisp oak.
Comment: The sweetness fails to mask a whisky that hasn't matured. All rather flat and plain.
