Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: A heathery moorland.
Palate: Deft interplay of slightly syrupy, malty, sweetness and very restrained peaty dryness.
Finish: Warming, soothing.
Comment: On principle, I have misgivings about private bottlings of unidentified malts, but this is an excellent dram.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Appealing: malty (green malt), dry bracken with sweet fruit and nut notes. Dry bracken.
Palate: Good, firm attack: toasted nuts, malt but with sufficient toffee sweetness to keep things interesting.
Finish: Medium length, pecan, fruit.
Comment: I have a vague family connection with the original Stronachie Distillery. Good to see the name back. A good aperitif.
