Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A gentle hint of sherry mixed with some sweet farmyard notes, goats cheese and maple syrup. Chocolate-covered honeycomb and a slight hint of menthol, almost eucalyptus oil.
Palate: Gentle at first, with plenty of chocolate eclairs, vanilla toffee and grilled peaches. Then the spices slowly start to build with cardamom and cumin, as well as a black pepper tingle.
Finish: The spices take hold, a slight chilli heat then it dries into sweet vanilla fudge.
Comment: A delightful whisky that really makes you smile.
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: An immediate sense of waxiness, like sweaty cheese and thick, set honey, then chewy toffees, milk chocolate, mint Matchmakers and – quite surprisingly – Moutai baijiu.
Palate: Lighter than the nose suggests, with lots of smooth milk chocolate and honey-soaked stone fruit, before chilli spice emerges with green aloe and eucalyptus notes.
Finish: Chocolate-covered raisins and dried chilli flakes.
Comment: If you couldn’t get away for a holiday this summer, this whisky certainly will.
