Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Cherry wood and cedar, like opening an old violin case – a little musty, woody, sweet bow rosin, and a mineral note like steel. Vanilla fudge and a little leather.
Palate: Lovely sweetness of honeycomb, milk chocolate. Dried tropical fruits – papaya and mango. Dark chocolate coated cherries. Hints of dried chilli flakes.
Finish: That chilli hit continues to rise. It leaves a lovely prickle on the palate as it dries.
Comment: More proof that there is some awesome whisky to be discovered in Australia.
Taster   Sam Coyne
Nose: This is awesome. Salted caramel, into green apples and stewed pears. To style it out, there's freshly cooked pastries.
Palate: Palate: More of the apple note from the nose, which is again clear and bright. Takes a step back and shows an earthy, malted cereal note. Reveals a few custard cream biscuits.
Finish: Short, a touch fleeting. Vegetable notes – where did they come from? Coriander completes a herbal finish.
Comment: Everything is well balanced, but maybe doesn't quite live up to that start.
