Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Huge full on dark fruits, blackcurrant compote, plum puddings, bramble jam, fig newtons then onto tangy blood orange, sticky cherry herring and oak and banana.
Palate: Sticky, mouth coating, oily. A mix of those hard lime and chocolate sweets and some great juicy fruits, ripe strawberries, doughnut peaches and Victoria plums. There’s a little smoky note.
Finish: Long, lush, hints of spice and plums.
Comment: OK it’s old, and it’s probably expensive, but blimey that was quite something. Impressive.
Taster   Sam Coyne
Nose: Forward and in your face, with ripe fruits, a bright and vibrant pressed coffee note and a nudge towards tobacco.
Palate: Key lime pie? Fresh doughnuts bring a little more sweetness to balance the citrus, before oakiness takes over, with heat and cooking spices. Twists again with strawberries, raspberries and figs.
Finish: The oak returns and dries everything out a little bit, but there’s still a freshness from those red berries.
Comment: Very good. If a friend is in doubt about good whiskeys show them this one.
