Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Edgy and slightly herbal with honey and a touch of sweet, almost grainy notes along with sultana and white grape. With time it becomes a little tropical in character.
Palate: Opens with a touch of coffee and again a slightly crisp grain-like note. Creamy toffee appears on the middle as the oak arrives. Pleasantly deep if a little straightforward.
Finish: Fabulously spicy, mouth-watering and juicy, which was a surprise!
Comment: I thought it was going to be a fairly simple grain whisky and then it sprang to life on the finish.
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Dried ginger, brandy snap biscuits and a touch of smoked maple syrup. Some sweet fragrant Earl Grey tea lurks underneath.
Palate: A little watery for the strength, with caramel notes, some sweet tea and toasted almonds.
Finish: A pleasant toastiness develops further in, alongside some drying oak.
Comment: Not a star performer, but hints of something interesting in there, held back somewhat by hesitancy.
