Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Flowery, dry. Zest of lemon. Resiny. Leafy. Hint of peat.
Palate: Creamy mint toffee. Sweet, smooth, start, falling away somewhat.
Finish: Ginger. Spicy, medicinal. Warming. Soothing.
Comment: The best Coleburn I have tasted.
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: A floral perfume of bluebells and damp moss.
Palate: An early sprinkling of clean malt quickly disintegrates into something too oaky, hot and rugged for it's own good.
Finish: Tired, one-dimensional malt and offers a degree of sweetness against the drying and bitter oak.
Comment: Despite the low mark, pretty good by Coleburn standards. The nose and finale are impressive.
