Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Baked apples, cherry cough sweets and dried fruit notes of raisins and prunes. Soft leather note and hints of tobacco; the drawers in old oak desks, fountain pen ink, sugared almonds and lashings of salty caramel.
Palate: Cherry fudge with lots of red chilli spice and dried chipotle, rounded out by sea salt caramel sweetness.
Finish: Sea salt caramel softens out the initial prickle of the chilli spice.
Comment: Gorgeously balanced between sweet, salty and spice. This hits a perfect note between them all.
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: Pretty restrained, though somewhat earthy and dusty with some rye spice and muscovado sugar.
Palate: Delicately sweet and peppery, with some light caramel, fresh corn and candy canes. Dry spice builds into the middle, taking over on the palate.
Finish: Bready and warming with some caramel sweetness.
Comment: A perfectly pleasant, easy-drinking whisky. Would make a lovely Highball with some ginger ale.
