Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Tainted mildly by sulphur. Fruitcake rich, nonetheless, and pretty sweet despite the drier oaky tones.
Palate: Big, irrespective of the strength. Quite peppery, smoky and enticingly sweet with hickory? A gently salty edge with subtle build up of malty complexity.
Finish: Lingering peat. Vanilla oak guarantees a soft finale than might be expected.
Comment: A genuinely delightful malt that shows great charisma beyond the so-so nose.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Peach cobbler. Raisins.
Palate: Sherry-soaked sponge. Fudge. Cookies. Sweet at first and then dry. Chocolate digestive?
Finish: Suddenly the salt is back.
Comment: If you like whisky on your therapeutic porridge (and who doesn't?) this is the salty one.
