Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Very interesting. Treacle pudding covered in caramel sauce, then green tomatoes. Toasted brioche and clove, with a hint of salinity.
Palate: The caramel sauce is back, almost like toffee apples. Brioche bread and butter pudding with clove, baking spices, and some salted caramel ice cream.
Finish: Lingering caramel sauce bringing some tang, with the salinity from the nose returning.
Comment: A great journey through whisky’s flavour spectrum. It has complexity and a little fun in there, too.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Uncooked mincemeat (the boozy Christmas fruit kind) with candied peels. Nutmeg, cinnamon stick, treacle tart, cherry brandy, cedarwood, dried apple, apricot and cinnamon. Slightly herbaceous.
Palate: Medium. Well integrated. Some peach candy. Fruit and nut milk chocolate bar, candied ginger, malted milk, and dried apple. Chocolate-coated brazil nuts. Boozy fruit cake. Allspice. Candied citrus peels in rock buns.
Finish: Medium. Fruity cake and almond.
Comment: Youthful and vigorous, but with the makings of a festive dram.
