Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Interesting, youthful and very malty. Like a Dutch malt-wine with sweet barley, honey and a winey, Grappa-like note. A touch of buttery oak along with what feels like a little rye spice.
Palate: Crisper and edgy with more earthy rye-like notes and hints of sweet barley and youthful Grappa-like spirit. Subtle, dusty spice with building whisky notes and a suggestion of oak.
Finish: Good length, if a little dry. Subtle and smoky with malt biscuits and dark rye-like notes.
Comment: Curious and entertaining. I would have liked to have seen a little more balancing oak character on the palate.
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Lots of smooth spirit on the nose, the cask hasn’t had too much time to work on this one. Toasted marshmallows, flumps, and, with time, some runny honey.
Palate: A distinct creamy note to this and just the slightest hint of oak, it carries more flavour than that nose might suggest. Surely a stage on the journey to maturity?
Finish: Sherbet, old fashioned lemonade and lychee.
Comment: This tastes like it could be a great dram, but not for another few years yet.
