Tasting notes
Taster   Laura Foster
Nose: A freshly felled Christmas tree. A new exercise book. Freshly polished shoes. A heap of turmeric, all lifted by some candied bergamot peel, sweet peas and Refresher bars.
Palate: A dollop of clotted cream with toffee cake, sprinkled with nutmeg and cut through with a slightly tarnished silver cake slice. More pine needles on the palate, alongside a rosewater florality.
Finish: Spicy, with tingly, drying black pepper and more of that nutmeg carrying through.
Comment: Well balanced. A solid workhorse of a whiskey.
Taster   Mark Newton
Nose: Mellow, slightly perfumed and floral. Baked apples and vanilla. Fruit salad in golden syrup. Not masses happening, but it’s rather pleasant.
Palate: Commendable silkiness that repeats the apples and vanilla, with tons of honey. Apricots and peaches, then some raisins to boot. Spiced pears, praline, milk chocolate and buttermilk.
Finish: Medium-length, creamy, custardy and spicy, with honey stealing the show.
Comment: Easy drinking, but nothing really makes this stand out from the crowd.
