Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Autumnal leaves, figgy, those tobacco notes come out again, toasted marshmallows and a suggestion of leather.
Palate: A great spiced wave grips the tongue hinting at maturity, herbs mix in there too.
Finish: Odd this one almost vanishes leaving a tingling sherry and floral note.
Comment: Still able to lay you out in one hit, but what a way to go down.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Fruity. It’s like making marmalade then sealing the jars with wax. Some allspice and clove then marzipan and toffee. A classic example of a mature malt.
Palate: Rasps and coal dust then dried lavender, sage and heather blossom. The waxiness returns with water. Vibrant but obviously aged.
Finish: Seems to vapourise at the end leaving memories of orchid, honeysuckle and spice.
Comment: This is quite a ride and one well worth taking. I’m enjoying this!
