Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Cornbread and full fat butter, sweet with a malty edge. Salted popcorn. Red toffee apples and poached pears in caramel. Floral with Tulips and aloe plants. Fresh oak and pencil shavings, a little wet paint too.
Palate: That woody note is dominant, then toffee pennies and malted drink. Spices build with cracked black pepper and chocolate coated crystallised ginger.
Finish: Punchy, woody and spicy. It dries with malted barley and ginger spice.
Comment: A mixed spice bag of a whisky, intriguing stuff though.
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Demerara sugar syrup drizzled over poached pears and Madagascan vanilla ice cream. Cedar wood, steamed milk, dried mango pieces and banana chips.
Palate: Flashes of hot cement with sour plums, stewed rhubarb and cold chamomile tea. Earthy and musky with damp soil, pine sap and crushed caper berries.
Finish: Light and airy with a teeny, weeny metallic edge.
Comment: A straight laced malt with a bitter twist.
