Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Chutney spices, like a good homemade tomato and onion chutney. Homemade plum jam. Marmalade on malt loaf. Wet peat. A box of dark chocolates.
Palate: More floral than the nose, with a little peat smoke.
Finish: Some meatiness and cloves.
Comment: Bags of flavour and a good duel between cask and spirit.
8.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Thick and slightly oily. Boiled sweets, then a melange of fruit. Water increases the perfume and calms things down.
Palate: Starts dry then oily then fruity. Very silky then tinned fruit, smoke, charred wood and salt.
Finish: A little cloying.
Comment: These strange combinations make me think of an unconventionally beautiful model like Erin O'Connor.
