Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Runny heather honey, almost an apple pie note, apple compote with cream. A little grassy edge too.
Palate: That honey sweetness comes through with a viscous mouthfeel as well. More apple pie and spices. The oak bites a little but not much.
Finish: Hazelnut chocolate.
Comment: Nicely put together, a good post dinner dram.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Sweet and floral. Honeysuckle. Stewed pears in vanilla.
Palate: Sweet and round. Mouthcoating. Roasted apples with cinnamon. Toffee.Getting drier and spicier. A slight oak astringency.
Finish: Medium long, spicy (ginger ) with a nutty aftertaste.
Comment: A well balanced dram, on the oaky edge of things.
