Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Herbal and grassy with aloe vera, furniture polish, damp leaves and hints of lavender. Vanilla essence, linen, lightly toasted oak and freshly laid carpets.
Palate: Apple crumble with toasted oats, elderflower, heather honey and a sprinkle of icing sugar. Hints of acrylic paint, torched rosemary and carrot dipped in houmous.
Finish: Oily consistency with a floral finish.
Comment: Floral and fruity. Typical Speyside characteristics.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Gives nothing away apart from a vague toffee note. Cherry blossom, caramel and vanilla toffees. Fresh air dried washing and then some sugared almonds.
Palate: Lots of sweetness, mandarin juice, tinned tropical fruit and Tip Top cream. Vanilla laden sugar. Banana bread and brandy snap biscuits.
Finish: Quite timid, disappears quickly leaving that great toffee sweetness.
Comment: Doesn’t give much away, to the point that it feels that all it gives is sweetness.
