Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Gorgeous buttery pastries, fresh out of the oven. Layers of syrupy fruit, like apricot and peach. Some herbal hints of sage and caramel sauce.
Palate: The buttery note continues here, with thick-cut marmalade. A single scoop of vanilla ice cream with a drizzle of caramel and heather honey.
Finish: The heathery notes work with the caramel to see this out.
Comment: This whisky is like a spring morning, nipping out to get a pastry and then enjoying a stroll in the countryside. Light and wholesome all at once.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Furniture polish, rum-raisin ice cream, Christmas cake and plum sauce. Some five spice and stewed green apples and pears. Leather and old books. Subtle black bean sauce, and chocolate granola.
Palate: Medium-full. Chocolate gateau, toffee-dipped cherries, and intense ginger heat. Intensely fruity: concentrated apple, blackberry and pear pie. Some anise.
Finish: Long, on chocolate, clove and anise.
Comment: A distilled chocolate fruit cake.
