Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Sweet clotted cream followed by sweet pork on the barbecue, with some salinity, grilled peach and crystallised ginger.
Palate: Fruit notes are dialled up with fresh peach this time, dark dried fruits, and a thick and creamy black forest gateaux to round out that sweetness.
Finish: Syrupy peach hits here, with just a hint of that salty pork and soft malted notes.
Comment: A true journey through flavour, with class and finesse through and through.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: An unusual nose of surgical gloves or natural latex and cigar boxes that then shifts to powdered almond, macaroons, and Scottish tablet.
Palate: Sweet and full bodied, with clove, pink peppercorn sauce, clootie dumpling, and dried cranberry. Rum-raisin ice cream, too.
Finish: After the initial demerara sweetness, the whisky becomes pleasantly tart, like a rhubarb and gooseberry tart with spices.
Comment: Robust aromas and hearty flavours mean this is a whisky with a lot of personality.
