Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Straightforward nuttiness/nut shell, slightly bitter. Opens into yew, sawn oak, draff, then marshmallow and a touch of apple and fig relish.
Palate: Nut oils. Quite biscuity and rich. Leafy.
Finish: Crisp short.
Comment: A perfectly pleasant dram, but lacking the finesse and complexity of the best on show here.
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Malt extract, chocolate mint, melted cheese, honeysuckle, brown bread with lots of butter. Background grassiness.
Palate: Citric, with orange juice and lime. Stewed fruits and toasted oak.
Finish: Malty and citric.
Comment: Has that balanced character that makes for an ideal gift whisky, but lacked drama.
