Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Massively fruity up front. Blackcurrant compote, dark forest honey and lashings of buttercream and vanilla.
Palate: Roasted pine nuts with a little exotic spice. Ginger cake slathered with buttercream and blackcurrant jam. All-butter shortbread with fondant and milk chocolate, sprinkled with crushed hazelnuts.
Finish: The sweetness dries out slowly leaving dry roasted peanuts and a hint of spice.
Comment: A well-put-together blend with plenty of interesting layers of flavour.
8.3
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Sweetness of strawberry jam, crushed pistachios and stewed prunes. Meringues, nectar honey and gorse flowers. A massive bowl of fruit salad.
Palate: Hello fruit salad. Add in some crushed cumin seeds, herbs and a Bombay spice mix. All the nuts basically. A buttery texture emerges with sugar-coated beignets too.
Finish: The buttery consistency dries out the palate very quickly to allow a nuttiness to dominate.
Comment: If whiskies could be a film character – the Nutty Professor.
