Tasting notes
Taster   Charles Montanaro
Nose: Young fresh citrus, young malt, fresh grapes, muscat, strong musty wine driven aroma.
Palate: Perfume, mint, wine driven with heavy notes of muscat with marzipan.
Finish: Short lived finish, yet, lively and crisp.
Comment: Impossible to get my head around this dram. Very unusual finish and ageing, intriguing to say the least. Muscat / wine finish? The sample was finished as I kept sampling more to try and further understand the dram.
7.5
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: A little hard with a feint sulphur note (probably pushed stills as it isn’t sherry matured). Industrial with herbs, uncooked dough, coffee and some sweetish barley attempting to inject some balance.
Palate: Vague and surprisingly watery given its ABV, with hard barley and industrial notes. Sweet barley and toffee endeavour to add balance with a mineral note on the middle.
Finish: Drying, grassy and herbal with the industrial notes lingering beneath the citrus.
Comment: Not my favoured style of whisky and for that reason...I’m out!
