Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Slice after slice of gresh ginger, then chocolate covered ginger snap biscuits, all enjoyed with a fruit tea.
Palate: A lot of sweet warmth comes through here thanks to the ginger. This is balanced by creamy Victoria sponge and syrupy tinned peaches.
Finish: A fruity and firey finish that keeps holding on and on.
Comment: For lovers of a whisky and ginger, this whisky could very well save you hours of cocktail-making time!
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: A warming nose of harvest fruits and burnt brown sugar, like a baked rhubarb and raspberry crumble. Old leather, beeswax, and a touch of tobacco.
Palate: It has a thick mouthfeel with a prickly spice. Flavours like Dr Pepper and root beer, dried apricot, and orange chocolate, with a flash of fruity sourness.
Finish: Long and peppery with sugary cinnamon and sweetened Horlicks, followed by mouth-puckering astringency and a hint of liquorice.
Comment: Almost sickly sweet, but tannins and anise pull it back.
