Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: White chocolate, apricots, lily of the valley, heather. A hint of suede jacket and some grapefruit.
Palate: A wonderful mix of tropical fruits, vanilla, peach melba ice cream and marzipan.
Finish: Soft, herbal and sweet.
Comment: Really utterly yummy. Perfectly balanced.
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Crisp and grainy with hints of citrus, grass and very subtle oak. With time a little nutty toffee appears along with some honey, earth and fragrant tobacco smoke.
Palate: Soft and toffeed with honey and nuts. Sweeter than the nose and showing a lot more oak character. The crisp grain and lightly oiled dried fruit comes through on the middle to balance.
Finish: Long and succulent with the dried fruit lingering and finishing with a little chocolaty tannin and tobacco smoke.
Comment: A pleasant grain with good balance and character. Ideal for exploring grain whiskies.
