Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Quite nutty up front, roasting chestnuts on a log fire, freshly cracked hazelnuts and chocolate coated brazil nuts. A bit of orange peel brings sweetness, and gentle smoke.
Palate: Those nut notes continue, pecan pie and candy-coated almonds. Creamy peanut butter on warm seeded bread. There’s also a bit of treacle toffee going on too, some baking pastry.
Finish: Carrot sweetness and a little beetroot earthiness, but still sweet and quite light.
Comment: Very easy to drink whiskey with plenty going on in the flavour stakes.
Taster   Sam Coyne
Nose: Christmas time with roasted chestnuts, dried orange peel, cinnamon, vanilla and marzipan. There’s a slightly bitter aroma right at the end.
Palate: Definitely one for the yuletide right here. Christmas cake, citrus peels, pronounced enough between lemon and orange, few Danish pastries, salty peanut butter – all of which are good things and balanced nicely.
Finish: Earthier. Coriander, which brings a little more bitterness.
Comment: A good quality Bourbon, that has enough about it to become a go to.
