Tasting notes
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Frosted corn flakes, white chocolate, sultana, dried apricot, cocoa powder, fresh peach and waffles doused in maple syrup.
Palate: Creamy and, surprisingly, medium-full in body. There’s rum-raisin ice cream, cocoa, tinned peaches in syrup, with wafer cone and chewy caramels. It’s all really quite indulgent.
Finish: Sweet and fruity as per the palate for a medium-long finish.
Comment: A great example of well-aged grain. I wish there were more around like this. I’d definitely buy this if I had the chance.
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Butterscotch mousse, pineapple slices, a mango daiquiri, sweet raisin, thick cream, and meringue. Oily candle wax and hazelnuts. Porridge-y, verging on rice pudding.
Palate: More sweetness on the palate, with rum and raisin cheesecake, creamy and boozy, freshly sliced mango, beeswax, almond nuttiness, sugar-covered ginger chunks, hint of mincemeat.
Finish: Medium finish that leaves you with the rummy note and drying sandalwood.
Comment: This really is one for those with a bit of a sweet tooth.
