Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Fragrant honey, menthol, marjoram and dried fruit. Quite unusual with an almost agricole rum-like demeanour. With time hints of herbal grain and subtle smoke.
Palate: More conventional with plenty of barley, lightly creamy oak and white fruit. The crisp, herbal grain comes through on the middle.
Finish: Good length. Quite spicy with the alcohol giving it a pleasantly intense, slightly grainy finish.
Comment: From the nose I was expecting a grain heavy blend but the malt component pleasantly balances the grain on the palate.
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Not a lot going on in this closed nose. With some time in the glass green apples, crab-apples and gooseberries appear, with a back drop of vanilla custard.
Palate: A lovely and soft, ‘Mr Whippy’ ice cream style which is mouth filling and surprisingly tasty after a slightly anaemic nose. Fully roasted potatoes and freshly cooked green veg give this a savoury edge.
Finish: Oak spices and ready salted crisps.
Comment: Not a bad little blended whisky. I don’t think this will challenge too many people but might be a good gateway blend to richer offerings.
