Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Attractively floral with significan't oak input. Polished floorboards and a scattering of crushed hazelnut: firm to the point of being rock hard.
Palate: Hard and bullet-like from the off with an almost Irish pot still firmness.
Finish: Medium length and remains pretty sharp and crisp.
Comment: Pretty impressive and singular in style. First-rate bittersweet balance.
8.3
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Gunmetal. Passion fruit. Sweet broom.
Palate: Honeydew melon. Orange syrup. Honey roast peanuts.
Finish: Salty but oily and soothing.
Comment: A complex and distinctive malt.
