Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Like a fruit salad, oranges, pears, melons and a little cherry bitterness. There is a distant coal tar soap note.
Palate: Smoke fills the mouth and the sweetness hits a little later. Velvety and mouth coating.
Finish: Crisp and sweet.
Comment: A decent solid dram for everyday drinking, and nothing wrong about that.
8.0
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Very fruity. Ripe William pear. Some white peach as well. A distant smoke curling up.
Palate: Smooth, round. Thick velvet. The smoke invades the palate, pushing the fruit back. Completely different from the nose. Touch of lemon drop. Soot.
Finish: Short, smoky.
Comment: Probably a young whisky, with a twoface profile. Fruit on the nose, smoke on the palate. And not much more.Pleasant but simplistic.
