Tasting notes
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Vanilla scented candle wax, condensed milk, big fatty cream toffees and pears in white wine.
Palate: A touch of copper alongside some dry tobacco leaves, and dark chocolate as well.
Finish: Sweet vermouth, strong tannic tea and a cinnamon note.
Comment: Surprisingly silky and sweet, leading to a much more well aged dryness. A dram of refinement indeed.
Taster   Annabel Meikle
Nose: Salted limes, coconut water, fresh rock pools and oyster shells. Shy and takes time but sweetens with apple rings and panna cotta.
Palate: Lemon and lime. A toasted warmth develops like key lime pie eaten at the seaside. Baked apples and fresh laundry on the line.
Finish: Fresh as a daisy, crisp and clean but has a subtle depth.
Comment: I didn’t see this one coming but I really like the influence of the Navigator.
