Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Posh, scented candlewax (like the type one might buy in Jenners, doncha know). Warm baking and a slight phenol character, like floor polish or swimming pools. Honey.
Palate: Lots of maltiness, more wax and an astringent citrus.
Finish: Grassy and slightly peaty.
Comment: Good, mature but still lively.
8.3
Taster   Owen Barstow
Nose: Light and clean but spirity. Faint tangy orange with a biscuity base note.
Palate: Sugary and citrussy. Marmalade notes. Silver Shred? Somewhat reminiscent of old fashioned Lucozade.
Finish: Sweet and warming. Late dusty cocoa dryness.
Comment: Simple blocks of flavour and aroma come together to form a whisky that might have benefited from a few more years maturation.
