Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Singed, like a burning carpet, or burning hair (maybe a flaming toupee?) Malty, with cocoa nibs and an earthy weight.
Palate: A similarly charred start. Clean enough, with a burnt almond edge. Grippy but it is killed with the addition of water.
Finish: Firm and nutty.
Comment: Don't get me wrong, there's nothing bad with this it's just amazingly bland.
7.3
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Metallic and meat: like the roasting tin as you pull out the joint of pork. Grassy, citric and a bit earthy.
Palate: Baked ham, toffee and some tinned peaches.
Finish: Spices, perhaps morrocan.
Comment: OK, fine, solid. Whisky should be more though, right?
