Tasting notes
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Perfumed notes of orange blossom water, lily of the valley and rose, with physalis, cinchona bark, cinnamon and tarragon. Root ginger, golden syrup and bread dough.
Palate: Medium bodied. Tart (under-ripe) papaya and pineapple, green mango and more physalis. Delicate clove, gentian and wormwood. All balanced by rice paper, heather honey and tangerine.
Finish: Medium-long. Gently drying, under-ripe fruit notes linger with delicate sweet iced tea.
Comment: A complex, high-quality dram with a heady character.
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Up first is volin rosin, followed by toffee pennies, dark chocolate with orange and almond, then pine cones.
Palate: Things get a little spicier here, like a cardamom bun, dusted with cinnamon. Chocolately notes are still there, with vanilla pods mixed in, and a hint of heather honey.
Finish: Relatively short, with a lingering hint of chewy toffee.
Comment: There’s a lot that is very good here, but I think it could be improved by a bit more character on the finish to round it out.
