Tasting notes
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Soft melon,pineapple,boiled sweets.
Palate: Clean malt delivery,crystallised fruit. Well balanced.
Finish: Quite short but more-ish.
Comment: Beautifully presented with fruit and barley working together. But a tad polite and falls just short ofsuperstar status.

Palate: Thin and unsubstantial. Toffee apples?
Finish: Short,unremarkable.
